Authorities say a Charleston man wanted in the weekend shooting death of his former mother-in-law returned to the house and wounded his ex-wife and then shot himself.

Charleston County Coroner Rae Wooten says 41-year-old Ronald Daniel Ratliff's body was found Tuesday in the attic of the home. Wooten says Ratliff died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Authorities had been looking for him when he returned to the house Tuesday.

A deputy was with family members when someone fired at the house, wounding Ratliff's ex-wife. Deputies got about 10 family members safely outside and police surrounded the house.

Investigators say Ratliff had been released last week after four months in jail on a charge of criminal domestic violence against his ex-wife.
