Police say man killed himself, wife and 2 sons

COLORADO SPRINGS (AP) — A man jailed last week for attacking his estranged wife returned to her apartment and apparently shot her and her two sons to death, then killed himself, authorities said.

A maintenance worker, responding Tuesday morning to calls from worried acquaintances of the family, found the body of Lolita Raghunandan, 32, inside the front door. Police discovered the bodies of the father, Rutendra Raghunandan, 32, and two sons, ages 5 and 10, in a bedroom.

Investigators believe the husband shot the others and then killed himself, Sheriff's Sgt. Jim Groth said.
