A 78-year-old man shot and killed his 21-year-old wife, then set their home on fire before turning a pistol on himself, according to Port St. Lucie police, and reported in The Orlando Sentinal.

Police received two 911 calls shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday and went to the home, said police spokesman Officer Tom Nichols. Officers arrived to find the front door ajar and, behind it, the dead man with burns on his body.

Officers found the woman dead in a back bedroom that had smoke damage from a fire set with gasoline, Nichols said.
