Oakdale Murder Suicide Believed To Be Mercy Killing

Police say a man shot and killed his wife, their dog and then himself on the grounds of Oak Valley Hospital in Oakdale.

Authorities found the bodies yesterday. They have not released the names, but say the man and woman were in their mid-70s.

Police also say it appears to have been a mercy killing, as the woman suffered from a debilitating medical problem.
