Tony Woods got mad at his estranged wife, Tammie, because she wouldn’t stay with him last night.  As she drove away, “he started firing shots at her.”  Tammie was pronounced dead at the scene.

Tony has a terminal illness.  Tammie, although separated from him, would go to his house to help him with groceries and however she could.  Often times, Tony didn’t want her to leave.  This time, he did not control his anger.

Yesterday morning, William House, 50, shot and killed his wife Devinee, 42, and his 15-year-old stepson, Dakoda Johnson, before turning the gun on himself.  Three other children were in the house at the time, ages 8, 6, and 2.  They were not harmed – physically.  The killing seems to be the result of ongoing domestic problems.
