Anniston police this afternoon announced that a man and woman found dead in their Saks home last month were the result of a murder-suicide.

Through an investigation and two autopsies, police determined Darren Wilson, 52, stabbed his wife, Doris, 50, multiple times before killing himself with the knife, according to a press release sent by Anniston police.

On March 10, Anniston police responded to a domestic violence call at the 4400 block of Asbury Avenue. When officers arrived they were told a woman had been fatally stabbed and that her husband had been seen outside the home with a gun, the release said.

The Anniston Police Department’s Special Response Team made attempts to speak with the man, but no one responded, the release said. Officers entered the home after gas was deployed and a robotic device was used to search the residence.

The response team found Doris Wilson dead in the living room and discovered Darren Wilson’s body in the basement, the release said.

The Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences performed the autopsies at the agency’s Huntsville lab. The release from the Anniston Police Department states the investigation into both deaths has been closed.
