In Moscow a jealous husband, 44, killed his much younger wife, 26, before committing suicide.
Neighbours of the couple called the police when they heard the shots at 5:50 am. The officers broke down the doors of the flat and discovered the bodies of the owners, who died from shot wounds from a semi-automatic rifle MC-12, Interfax reported.
Criminalists determined that the man shot his wife twice and then went to a different room before shooting himself in the head.
Neighbours say they heard the couple argue because the wife came home too late before the shots were fired.
