      Apparent murder suicide rocks SC town

      Authorities say the shooting death of a South Carolina couple was an apparent murder-suicide.

      The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the shooting occurred early Wednesday in Mount Pleasant, a bedroom community across the Cooper River from Charleston.

      Police Capt. Stan Gregg says it appears 59-year-old Bruce Skinner shot his 62-year-old wife Marilyn and then turned the gun on himself.

      Skinner was a doctor who worked for a local law firm as an in-house medical expert. His wife was a hospice nurse.

      Next door neighbor Cynthia McDonough says she almost fainted when she heard the news and says there seemed to be nothing amiss at the Skinner home.
