"ST. LOUIS, MO — A man with a history of domestic violence fatally shot his wife and their 3-year-old son before killing himself in their south St. Louis home, police said.
"Police said the 35-year-old man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His wife, 26, and child were shot multiple times. Their names have not yet been released.
"The victims were discovered by their landlord inside a home in the 3400 block of Tennessee about 10:44 a.m. today.
"Police said the man had been charged in May for hitting his wife with a tire iron and was wanted in that attack. The couple and their son had just moved into the home on Tennessee three days ago.
"The man worked for the landlord cutting lawns and when he didn't show up for work Saturday the landlord went to the home and found the bodies, police said."
