Coppell Mayor Jayne Peters and her daughter were found dead in their home Tuesday night
A memorial service has been set for the Coppell mayor and her daughter who died in what police say was an apparent murder-suicide committed by the elected official.
Police said Mayor Jayne Peters apparently shot her 19-year-old daughter Corinne to death before fatally shooting herself. Police found the bodies Tuesday night after the mayor failed to show up at a city council meeting.
Notes left at the home warned officers about the scene they would find and outlined how to manage family affairs, but did not provide explanations for the deaths of the 55-year-old mayor and her daughter.
