Man arrested after wife and son found dead in Vaud
A 45 year old man has been arrested after his wife and son were found shot dead in Payerne in canton Vaud on Wednesday evening. A younger son survived.
The man handed himself into police in the early hours of yesterday morning. Witnesses say they heard several shots.
The woman and children moved into the apartment a few months ago after she left her husband. Neighbours say they were always arguing and smashed things.
The man is known to be a keen gun owner and had licences for several hand guns. But police are not confirming one of the guns he owned was used in the killing.
