Murder-Suicide in Jackson County
JACKSON COUNTY, AR - A local man and his wife have been found shot to death in what authorities are calling a murder-suicide.
It happened in Swifton Sunday afternoon around 12:30.
The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office says it received a 911 call from a man who said his father-in-law had called and told him he had just shot his mother-in-law and was going to shoot himself.
When deputies arrived at their home on County Rd., they found the couple's bodies on the kitchen floor, along with a single shot 12-gauge shotgun.
They are identified as Gayland McCall, 78, and Mary C. McCall, 79.
Their bodies have been sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for autopsies.
