DALLAS (AP) - Police are now confirming that the mayor of the Dallas suburb of Coppell shot her 19-year-old daughter in the back of the head, then waited about a day before killing herself.
The bodies of Mayor Jayne Peters and her daughter were found by police after she failed to show up for a July 13th city council meeting. Police say on the 12th, Corrinne Peters was seen for the last time loading personal items into her vehicle about 6:00 in the morning. About 30 minutes later, the mayor was seen unloading the items.
