OFFICIALS: Husband And Wife Dead After Murder-Suicide

Halifax County officials say a husband killed his wife and then took his own life Saturday.

Just before seven a.m., deputies were called to a home at 67 Access Road in Scotland Neck.

They say they arrived and found 41-year-old Jesus Flores had shot his wife, 34-year-old Catherine Flores. Lawmen say Flores then fatally shot himself.

The sheriff's office says there was previous domestic violence between the two.

    The people that they are talking about are my parents. I am upset that people could say such mean things. You all have no idea the life that my mom and siblings lived in each and every day. I pray for all the people that could say such negative things. My mom was the best mom that we could have ever had and did everything that she could for us even if she went without. I do wish that I could have been there at the time of the incident but God has a plan for everything and I am going to show everyone that me and my family can get through.Even though we did lose someone special she will always be in our hearts and there for us in spirit. God loves everyone even those who don't believe.

    What does it matter what race these people were-they were human beings. These childrens lives are shattered. These people were my neighbors and domestice violence was a part of their lives for a long time. Now is the time for the community to pull together and put the children first regardless of their race-they are innocent victims. God bless the family.

    It really does not matter if they were "white folk" They were parents and these children are suffering. Just to set the record straight though he was hispanic. If you really want to play the racial card read the story about the downtown shooting! Hmm... sounds like some black folk oh wait a minute it was!! I believe thats the second one in the past 2 weeks...

    It's sad because he probably sent his wife to Heaven and gave himself a one way ticket to see the devil.

    My deepest sympathy go out to the Webb family. Catherine, Ann as I knew her, was such a wonderful and sweet person. She was not just a wife, but a mother, daughter a friend. I am so sorry that the family has to go thru this. To her children and family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God be with you during this difficult time.

    People like this make me sick too. I say the same thing if you want to kill yourself, so be it go ahead. Just leave the innocent people Alone! I hope they didn't have children.
