Once inside, the sheriff's office says deputies found the husband, 32-year-old James C. Bevis, had killed himself with the same 9 mm handgun with which he allegedly shot his wife, 27-year-old Alexandrea Bevis.
The woman had been shot several times, and the sheriff's office says two small children were on the front porch when the shooting happened. The children were carried to safety by Alexandrea's mother before deputies arrived.
The Martin Police Department provided officers to help with entry into the home, and the sheriff's department was also assisted the Martin Fire Department, Weakley County Emergency Medical Services and the Tennessee Highway Patrol.
