Coppell Mayor Jayne Peters and her daughter were found dead in their home Tuesday night
A Dallas suburb where police say the mayor shot and killed her teenage daughter, then herself, last July is getting a new leader.
Police believe that Peters, whose death was discovered when she didn't show up for a July 13 city council meeting, was still mourning her husband, who died in 2008, and she had financial trouble. The body of her 19-year-old daughter, Corinne, was also in the family's home.
The city canceled the Nov. 2 special mayoral election because Stover was the only person running.
Mayor Pro Tem Bob Mahalik handled the mayor's duties in the interim.
