Louisiana family endures 2nd murder-suicide

SHREVEPORT, La. (AP) - Police say a man who arrested for threatening to kill his estranged wife has shot her to death while he was out on bail and then turned the gun on himself.

The Times reports that Michael Scott Salley, of Stonewall, was arrested Tuesday, but was released a day later on $50,000 bond.

On Friday, investigators say Salley shot his estranged wife, Gwen Salley, and then himself in southwest Caddo Parish. The couple had a 7-year-old daughter, who was not with them.

For Salley's family and others who knew him, the scenario was all too familiar.

In January 1999, Salley's brother Charles Salley shot his ex-girlfriend as she left work and his 3-year-old daughter. He pointed a gun at himself and then at police, who shot and killed him.
