MARTINSBURG, W.Va. - Autopsies have confirmed police investigators' beliefs that a Martinsburg man shot his wife last Saturday before turning a firearm on himself, Martinsburg Police Detective Sgt. G.B. Swartwood said Wednesday.
Jeffrey Michael Webber, 43, and Kimberly Anne Webber, 40, of 704 W. King St., were found dead in an upstairs bedroom about 1:30 p.m., but exactly when the shooting happened was not released Wednesday.
Swartwood said autopsies by West Virginia Deputy Chief Medical Examiner Zia Sabet in Charleston, W.Va., determined the couple's cause of death to be from gunshot wounds to the head and that Kimberly Webber was shot in the face. Her manner of death was homicide and Jeffrey Webber's gunshot wound was described as self-inflicted, Swartwood said.
"Martinsburg Police detectives conferred with Prosecuting Attorney for Berkeley County, Pamela Games-Neely, in regards to this investigation and findings, and she has deemed this case as closed," Swartwood said.
