Wagoner County, OK: Identities in Wagoner County murder-suicide released

BROKEN ARROW - The victims of a recent homicide-suicide have been identified.

Early Tuesday, a 53-year-old woman shot her 50-year-old husband in their home before she killed herself, Wagoner County Undersheriff Michael Stickelmeyer said.

Daryl Wilson died of gunshot wounds to the chest and abdomen, a spokeswoman with the state Medical Examiner’s Office said Friday. Teresa Wilson, whose birthday was Tuesday, died of a gunshot wound to the head, the spokeswoman said.

Wagoner County deputies were dispatched to the 21000 block of East 106th Street after receiving a call about 2 a.m. Tuesday from a woman requesting a coroner, he said.

Through a window, a deputy observed a woman covered in blood on the living room couch, Stickelmeyer said. The deputy entered the home and found a man in an office chair in the study, he said.

Notes were found in the home indicating how the woman wanted their belongings distributed after their deaths, Stickelmeyer said.

The couple kept to themselves and were going through a divorce, Stickelmeyer said neighbors told police.
