South Columbus Couple Dead After Murder/Suicide
Police say a man went to the south Columbus home of his estranged wife and asked to be let in before he fatally shot her and then committed suicide.
Columbus police say 39-year-old Eric Morgan showed up at the home of 47-year-old Kathy McCoy on Saturday afternoon and said he wanted to come inside. Police say McCoy reluctantly allowed him to enter her Columbus home.
Once inside, police say, Morgan killed her and then himself.
Detective Andrew Mitchell says the couple separated in July. Morgan’s mother, Brenda, says the separation happened after McCoy found out Morgan was cheating on her.
Brenda Morgan says McCoy was “a good woman” and her son “did wrong.”
Court records show Eric Morgan pleaded guilty in 2003 to a domestic violence charge.
