A woman and her boyfriend were found dead this morning in an apparent murder-suicide in Center.
State police in Butler said they were dispatched to the 5100 block of Brown Road at 1:40 a.m. after reports of a shooting. They found the body of Sonja Kummer, 45, lying outside on the ground dead from shotgun wounds, and while searching the property discovered Dean Vaughn Clawson, 49, dead from a self-inflicted shotgun wound, police said. Both lived at the Brown Road home.
Police told KDKA-TV that Ms. Kummer was packing her car to leave the home when she was shot.
Police had been called in December to the couple's residence for a domestic disturbance, according to KDKA.
