KIEL (AP) — The Manitowoc County coroner has made a ruling in the deaths of three people found in a Kiel home last May.

Authorities said Wednesday 69-year-old Jack Schigur fatally shot 50-year-old Julie Wood and her 10-year-old grandson, Mason Lesczykowski, before shooting himself. The coroner said all three died from gunshot wounds to the head May 26.

Investigators said Schigur and Wood were in a relationship and both were living in the home where the bodies were found.

WLUK-TV reported that investigators said a .380 caliber semi-automatic handgun, owned and registered by Schigur, was used in the shooting.

The Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation and State Crime Lab assisted in the investigation.
