Lori Conners, 64, had Lyme disease and had ovarian cancer that had spread, the warrant said. She had been considering suicide for some time before she died, according to the warrant, and had survived a suicide attempt by overdose a month prior. Investigators found 13 suicide notes in the couple’s home, police said.
Kevin Conners originally told investigators he had been sleeping in another room when he was awoken by the sound of a gunshot. He later admitted to helping his wife shoot herself, the warrant said.
