NEVADA, Mo. (AP) -
The Vernon County sheriff says a mother and her two sons died in a double murder-suicide at a home near Nevada.
Sheriff Jason Mosher said Monday that 77-year-old Fay Besaw and her sons, Charles and Harold Besaw, died in the shootings about three miles south of Nevada. The brothers were in their 50s.
The Joplin Globe reports Charles Besaw, who lived at the home with his mother, apparently killed her and his brother, who was visiting from California, before killing himself. He says the shootings happened Thursday and the bodies weren't found until Friday.
The sheriff says the family has asked his office not to release the likely motive for the shootings.
