Youth Worker Kills Wife, Turns Gun On Self
The man suspected of shooting his wife before turning the gun on himself at their home near Newry was a respected youth co-ordinator.
Andrew Kewley, known as Tully, worked on the Where is My Public Servant (wimps) project.
His wife, Caroline, was a part-time police officer, who was also known by her maiden name of Clark.
The couple, in their late 30s, were found at their house at Edentrumly Road in Mayobridge, shortly before 0045 BST.
A legally held firearm was recovered.
It is thought Mr Kewley killed his wife then himself after she told him that she wanted to leave him.

A statement on the Wimps website extended their sympathy to both families.
“We will sorely miss Tully’s infectious energy and unbridled enthusiasm,” it said.
“More still we will miss a dear colleague who showed a deep vocational commitment to improving the lives of young people, and who believed in them even when their self-belief was hard to find.”
Police are not looking for anyone else in connection to the deaths.
