By: John Axtell Posted at: 06/10/2019 11:20 PM
GOTHENBURG, Neb. (AP) - The Gothenburg Leader says a female Gothenburg police officer was killed Saturday night by her husband in a murder-suicide.

     53-year old Jill McCandless had joined the Gothenburg Police Department in 2010 as only the third woman on the force.

      The Nebraska State Patrol was dispatched to the McCandless home about 9:00 pm and found the bodies of McCandless and her 52-year old husband, Jeff McCandless.

      Officials say preliminary reports indicate Jeff McCandless fatally shot his wife before turning the gun on himself.
