Two wounded in murder-suicide attempt die


Two wounded in murder-suicide attempt die

Two people gravely injured in a murder-suicide plot Thursday have died, officials said. Steven Kane and his girlfriend, Cathy Chorba, who lived together on Villa Drive in Hudson, were found by deputies last week on out-of-the-way Secret Lane, off U.S. 19. Each had a single gunshot wound to the head, Sheriff's Office spokesman Doug Tobin said Monday. Investigators think Kane shot Chorba, called 911 and then turned the gun on himself. Kane, 56, died about 10 p.m. Friday, Tobin said. Chorba, 46, died the next morning. A four-door Buick was found at the scene, Tobin said, along with a .22-caliber rifle.
