FIRST ON WITN: Jacksonville Police Investigate Murder-Suicide; Victims Identified

Police have identified a married couple found dead in their Jacksonville home, victims of a murder-suicide.

The two bodies were found around 12:30 p.m. Tuesday after a parent of the woman called police asking to check on their welfare.

Police say their investigation shows that Jessica Hall was shot twice, while Jeremy Hall died from a single gunshot wound that was apparently self-inflicted. Both were 22 years old and originally from Amanda, Ohio.

Police say the couple had relocated to Jacksonville where the husband was a Marine at Camp Lejeune.

A Facebook profile says the two were married in February and that Hall was a tank crewman in the Marine Corps.
