Authorities say the daughter of a murdered Nevada official had an affair several months before fatally shooting the woman she was married to and then turning the gun on herself at their Phoenix home.
A police report released Tuesday concluded 32-year-old Dallas Kristin Augustine had killed 50-year-old Jessie McCaskill and then fatally shot herself in late August.
Augustine was the daughter of former Nevada Controller Kathy Augustine, who died in 2006. Augustine's stepfather, Chaz Higgs, was later convicted of murdering Kathy Augustine by injecting her with a paralytic drug.
Friends and family had told investigators that the couple had been together for about six years and had gotten married in California, but had disputes in the months leading up to the murder-suicide.
