Police: Texas Woman Killed Her Ex-Boyfriend, Then Herself

ROWLETT (June 17, 2014) A man and a woman found shot to death on Father’s Day in a home in the Dallas suburb of Rowlett died in a murder-suicide and the woman fired the deadly shots, police say.

Amanda Todhunter, 29, shot Navy Chief Petty Officer Brandon McClain, 34, to death over the weekend and then killed herself, investigators say.

The bodies were discovered Sunday after McClain's mother became concerned when her son missed a family event.

Todhunter moved out of the home about two weeks ago after she and McClain broke up, police say.

Officers were sent to the house in February in response to a family violence call and again last month in response to request for a welfare check.

The home is about a block from the house where two boys were stabbed to death in 1996.

Darlie Routier was sentenced to death in the slaying of her 5-year-old.

She was also charged with killing her 6-year-old but wasn't tried in his death.

She’s held on women’s death row in Gatesville.
