Police rule man, woman found shot to death at home as murder, suicide

By Heartland News

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -  Police made a grizzly discovery in a Paducah home Tuesday morning.  A man and woman were both found shot to death.

Police found the bodies of 32-year-old Kristofer Habeck and his girlfriend, 29-year-old Anna-Maria Shane in a home on North 23rd Street.

They have ruled the deaths a homicide-suicide.

Officers found the couple in a bedroom after conducting a welfare check at 925 North 23rd Street.

The Habeck's employer had called to say he hadn't heard from the man since Saturday.

An autopsy performed Wednesday confirms both died from a single gunshot wound to the head.

Det. Sgt. Brian Laird with the Paduah Police Department says the investigation determined that Habeck shot Shane with a .22-caliber handgun as she slept, then shot himself.

He says the couple had been arguing in the days leading up to their deaths.

Heartland News spoke with family members as well as neighbors about the couple who all say they are shocked by this.
