Authorities: Woman killed by boyfriend in murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

PEARL RIVER, La. (AP) - Authorities say a Louisiana woman has been fatally shot by her ex-boyfriend who later killed himself.

A St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office news release says 28-year-old Krystle Landor called 911 Sunday to report that her ex-boyfriend, 36-year-old John Malveaux, was a passenger in a pickup truck and had followed her to her home. News outlets report that Landor had a protective order against him.

Moments later, dispatchers received a call from someone else at the scene who reported the woman had been shot.

Authorities say a deputy spotted the truck, and the driver later led the deputy and others on a chase to a home. Authorities detained the driver, Leslie Davis. However, Malveaux ran inside the home and shot himself.

Malveaux was later pronounced dead. Landor died at a hospital.
