Sheriff: Baxter Co. man wanted apology to wife before killing

BULL SHOALS, Ark. (AP) - Marion County Sheriff Roger Vickers says a man who apparently shot and killed a food store manager and himself apparently wanted the manager to apologize to his wife.

Investigators say 41-year-old Timothy Dilday of Midway killed 50-year-old Harps Market manager Roger Swain of Mountain Home in Swain's office at the store on Tuesday. Officials say Dilday then shot and killed himself.

Vickers says Dilday's wife had resigned as an assistant manager at the store last week after an argument with Swain. The sheriff says store employees told investigators that Dilday thought Swain should apologize.

Officials say the store will remain closed until Thursday.
