BAXTER COUNTY, Ark. (KAIT) - Sheriff’s deputies are awaiting autopsy results in an apparent murder-suicide.

Around 5:45 a.m. Monday, Oct. 11, Baxter County deputies responded to a home on Buford Road after receiving a call from a woman who said she had shot her husband then shot herself.

When deputies arrived, they found 43-year-old James Wilmans and his wife, 52-year-old Marcy Wilmans, dead of apparent gunshot wounds in their bedroom.

Sheriff John Montgomery said in a Monday news release the bodies had been sent to the Arkansas State Medical Examiner’s Office in Little Rock to determine the cause and manner of death.
