Missouri man kills three people, two from Baton Rouge
STRAFFORD, Mo. — A Missouri man is charged with three counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and her parents.
The shooting happened Saturday evening inside the home of the suspect, 50-year-old Jesse Huy. According to the Greene County Sheriff's Department, Huy called authorities Saturday evening and admitted to murdering three family members inside of his home.
The victims were 48-year-old Tonya Huy and her parents, 71-year-old Ronald Koehler and 78-year-old Linda Koehler of Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
Tonya Huy's parents returned to Springfield to assist her after having back surgery. Jesse Huy reportedly told investigators he felt upset and disrespected.
Investigators say Huy shot each person twice in the head while they all sat at a table.
When dispatchers asked him why he did it, Huy reportedly said, "They wouldn't leave. I've been waiting for a week for them to leave. I've had enough." Huy added that he would not resist arrest when deputies came to his home.
Huy is jailed without bond. Authorities have not disclosed a motive.
