PHILIPSBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania State Police say they believe a retired trooper killed his wife with a shotgun inside a supermarket and then himself two days after she filed for divorce.

Department spokeswoman Maria Finn said the slain woman is Tracie Miscavish. Finn says she filed for divorce from her husband, Mark Miscavish, two days ago. He had retired in 2011 after 15 years on the force.
