Facebook status change led to NC murder-suicide

NEW DETAILS: Deputies Say Homicide-Suicide Happened After Facebook Update:

Police in Onslow County, North Carolina say that 62-year-old Peter Terrance Moonan killed his ex-girlfriend, 63-year-old Karen Ann Rooney, after she changed her Facebook status to ‘Engaged’. Moonan then turned the gun on himself taking his own life, or as I call it taking the coward’s way out.

Rooney had just recently got engaged to a new boyfriend.
