Autopsy: Husband pulled trigger in Redford Twp. murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) - The Wayne County medical examiner's office is listing the deaths of an off-duty Detroit police officer and her husband as a murder-suicide.
 
Autopsy results Friday show 50-year-old Anna Hamilton-Barton suffered multiple gunshot wounds, while 47-year-old Damon Barton died of a self-inflicted gunshot to his head

Their bodies were found Thursday at about 11:40 a.m. in the house the couple shared on the 9900 block of Kinloch in Redford Township.

Fox 2 is told Damon has a criminal record, spent time in jail twice and was paroled last year. Neighbors say Anna was in the process of seeking a divorce.

Hamilton served 16 years on the force. She is said to have currently been working as a patrol officer but had previously worked in the narcotics unit.
