A preliminary investigation indicates the wife of a Burnet County Jail employee shot her spouse once in the back of the head Thursday, April 13, at their Lampasas home before turning the weapon on herself, according to Lampasas Assistant Police Chief Jody Cummings.

“It appears that Deborah Chance shot Millie Chance with a 9mm Glock semiautomatic as Millie Chance had an apparent gunshot wound to the back of her head,” Cummings said Monday. “It then appears that Deborah Chance shot herself as she had an apparent gunshot wound to the forehead.”
