Four people were killed in what authorities are calling a murder-suicide. It happened at a home in Holden this weekend.
Sheriff's deputies said Dennis Carter, Senior, shot his son, grandson, and estranged wife. His daughter-in-law, Amber Carter, was also hit, and jumped out of a window to protect herself.
She was pregnant and had to deliver her baby four months early.
Dennis Carter later turned the gun on himself. He had been arrested three times this year for violating a restraining order.
