Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson woman is dead and her husband is in the hospital, in what appears to be a botched murder-suicide attempt.

Jackson police were called to 121 Valley Ridge in northwest Jackson just before 8:30 Tuesday morning. A family member had discovered the body of Sharon Kelly, 45.

She was pronounced dead on the scene with a gunshot wound to the head. With her, was her husband Louis Kelly, 56, who suffered a gunshot wound to the upper torso.

Police believe Louis Kelly shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself. He was taken to the U-M-C. His condition is not available.

The couple has a young son, who was at school at the time.
