Deaths in Kewaunee County apparent murder-suicide

A couple's death on Washington Road in the Township of Ahnapee north of Algoma has been initially considered a murder-suicide by the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department.  According to the news release on Monday evening, 71-year-old Dennis A. McMillan apparently shot Laura McMillan, 56, multiple times at their home before turning the gun on himself.  The Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department was called to the residence for a welfare check last Friday.  Upon arriving at the home, sheriff deputies observed two bodies on the floor through a window after no one came to the door.  The incident remains under investigation with the Wisconsin Department of Criminal Investigation assisting the Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department.  No other details are available at this time.
