Authorities in Gloucester County say a man took his own life after he fatally shot his wife earlier this month.

According to the Franklin Township Police Department, at around 5:30 Friday evening, November 3rd, officers were called to a home on Weymouth Road after they received a 9-1-1 call.

At the scene, they found 62-year-old Karen Conner who had been fatally shot once in the head.

An investigation determined Karen Conner's husband, 67-year-old Laurence D. Conner, was responsible for pulling the trigger.

On November 8th, a warrant was issued for his arrest, having been charged with homicide and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

This past Friday, November 10th, Laurence Conner was discovered dead from a self-inflicted gunshot in a vehicle in Vineland.

This investigation remains ongoing at this time.
