Phoenix police said the two women were found dead in their home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Dallas Augustine, 32, shot Jessie in their Phoenix home. Augustine then killed herself, police said.  Police say they received a call from McCaskill's family members after they hadn't heard from the woman since Thursday.

Augustine, who was a Department of Corrections officer, is accused of shooting her wife multiple times. The bodies were found in the living room." Indications at the home that one of them appears to have been trying to move out at the time the incident occurred," said Phoenix police Sgt. Trent Crump.

Philip Allen, who lives next to the women, said they were pleasant people, but often fought. "When they went in the house they raised hell." Allen said he heard fighting and items being smashed in the house next door to him at least once a week.
