(Information from: The Oklahoman, http://www.newsok.com)
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – An FBI affidavit filed says a man, who authorities say fatally shot himself after being suspected of killing two people, faced five felony counts of uttering forged instruments in connection with an insurance scheme.
The affidavit says 55-year-old Timothy Michael Deffner allegedly stole more than $67,300 in payments from an insurance company meant to cover a property damage claim on a home his in-laws owned.
The Oklahoman reports Deffner apparently shot and killed himself after being surrounded by police and ordered to surrender Wednesday morning.
Police say Deffner was wanted in the Tuesday night shooting deaths of his estranged wife, 49-year-old Cayann Deffner, and her attorney, 47-year-old Bryan Young.
