Ex-husband, new mate dead in SC murder-suicide

Aug 22, 2010 4:25:00 PM - thestate.com
Investigators say a South Carolina man forced his way into the home of his ex-wife's boyfriend and killed him before driving away and committing suicide.

West Columbia Police Capt. Seth Zeigler says 28-year-old Gerald Heyward Copeland shot 39-year-old Clyde Jacob Yarborough several times Sunday morning after breaking out a window in the back door of Yarborough's home.

Zeigler says Copeland's ex-wife was also in the home, but wasn't hurt.

Richland County deputies say Copeland was found dead several miles away in a car suffering from what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Authorities say the couple had been separated for several months and they are investigating whether Copeland and Yarborough had previous confrontations.
