Police identify couple in murder-suicide case

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — Police say an Oshkosh woman was fatally shot by the father of her child, who then took his own life.

Authorities say 26-year-old Clint Jorgensen called 911 about 4 p.m. Saturday. Police Chief Dean Smith says when officers arrived they heard a baby crying inside the residence.

Police found 26-year-old Brooke Harris with multiple gunshot wounds at the top of the stairs. She died at the hospital. Smith says they found Jorgensen dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound and a gun next to him.

Authorities say the couple had been having relationship problems and Harris had been staying with family members. Smith says Harris had gone to the residence to drop off their 9-month-old child, who was not injured.
