COUNCIL BLUFFS — Before he killed himself Saturday morning, Terry Francis fatally shot his girlfriend in her home, police said.
Francis, 42, went to Stephony Metzger's home at 1801 Pueblo Road and killed the 38-year-old woman in her bedroom. He then shot himself, police said.
The homicide and suicide occurred about 9:45 a.m., about 30 minutes before police were called by Metzger's daughter, 18, who lives at the home, Sgt. Chad Meyers said. Her 16-year-old son also lives there.
Francis and Metzger had been in a romantic relationship for several years, police said.
Francis lived in Council Bluffs, though not at Metzger's home.
