More on the Yuma Shooting

The Daily Herald reports on the details behind the terrible murder-suicide.When the story first broke there were very few details.

A shooting spree in southwestern Arizona followed 73-year-old gunman Carey Hal Dyess' bitter divorce and claimed the lives of his ex-wife and four people who supported her during the 2007 case, according to investigators and court records.

The six-hour rampage, which started around dawn Thursday in the small town of Wellton and extended west to Yuma, ended when Dyess pulled his car over and shot himself to death.
Both husband and wife had accused the other of domestic abuse and had gotten restraining orders. Yet, true to form, the woman was the murder victim and the man was the suicide.
