COLUMBUS -- Police are looking into a murder and attempted suicide on Kingpin Drive in Northeast Columbus.
A 72-year-old man called 9-1-1 just after 2 p.m. saying he had just stabbed his wife several times and stabbed himself in the neck.
The man stayed on the phone with dispatchers until Columbus police arrived at the scene. He was gripping his cell phone in one hand and his neck with the other.
He had said on the phone that there weren't any problems between he and wife and that he had never tried to commit suicide before.
The couple's children and neighbors are "in shock" with this crime. Vicki Kovarik says the couple was very nice and helpful. She describes them as strong Catholics. "I'm in shock. I can't believe it," said Kovarik. "My husband just help them dig out their driveway from the last big snowstorm."
Police are waiting on a search warrant to go through the home for clues as to what might have led up to this murder.
