Jun 4, 2013

Pickaway County Sheriff's deputies say robbery was the motive for Saturday's double murder-suicide in Orient.

Eugenia Anderson and Harry Butler were killed by Michael Melrose, who then turned the gun on himself when confronted by deputies. Deputies say Melrose was an out-of-work carpenter who was in a dispute with the couple over unfinished work at their home.
