1 dead in murder-suicide at Phoenix apartment

PHOENIX Phoenix police say a man who appears to have shot a woman as part of a murder-suicide pact will face charges.

Authorities say the 44-year-old man and a 29-year-old woman were found Friday at about 2:30 p.m. inside a Phoenix apartment with gunshot wounds.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.

The man was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.

Police say evidence at the scene indicates the man fatally shot the victim but then became the victim of a failed suicide attempt. They say the two lived together at that apartment.

Authorities plan to book the man into jail once he is released from the hospital.
