Sacramento, CA: Couple who died in Sacramento murder-suicide identified

The Sacramento County coroner has released the names of the couple who died in a weekend murder-suicide.

The husband was identified as Edward Lee Randolph, 28, of Sacramento. His estranged wife was identified as Michelle Kelli Randolph, 28, of Sacramento.

Police said that Edward Randolph killed his wife and wounded the man she was dating early Sunday.

Police said Michelle Randolph was shot to death in a home in the 1600 block of Meadowview Road in south Sacramento. A man also in the home, in his early 20s, was shot in the lower body with non-life threatening injuries.

When police arrived, the male victim identified the woman's estranged husband as the shooter, and he provided police with a description of the husband and his vehicle. Not long after that, police found him driving near the Elk Grove city limits.

Officers from both the Sacramento and Elk Grove Police departments stopped the car at Franklin Boulevard and Sims Road. Before officers approached, Edward Randolph shot himself while still in his car, police said.
