GONZALES, La. (AP) - Ascension Parish sheriff's deputies say a 38-year-old Gonzales man killed his wife and then attempted to kill himself.
Lt. Col. Bobby Webre tells The Advocate Gerardo Lua was transported to an area hospital earlier Thursday morning where he is listed in critical condition.
Webre said Lua shot himself in the head after killing his wife, 36-year-old Alejandra Orozco.
Webre says the couple's son, who had been out with friends, returned home and found his parent's lying on the floor in a back bedroom.
