An elderly couple is dead after an apparent murder-suicide Monday in northeast Columbia.
Columbia police found Wayne and Mary Trentman dead from gunshot wounds in a home at 5704 Kelsey Drive after officers were called there at about 8:30 a.m. Monday, according to a news release. Wayne Trentman was 79 and Mary Trentman was 83.
Police said Wayne Trentman had called 911 and said his wife had died. Officers when they arrived also found Wayne Trentman had been shot and determined his wound was self-inflicted.
The investigation is ongoing, police said.
Police had spent much of the morning at the home with crime scene tape up around the yard. A crime scene investigation van was also at the scene.
