LEFLORE COUNTY (KFSM) — LeFlore County deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide that happened in Wister, Friday (Jan. 20).

The victim, 52-year-old Nola Robertson, was found between 10-10:30 a.m. in a car near Maxey Cemetery on Highway 271, according to LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale.

Deputies said the suspect, 55-year-old William Robertson, committed suicide and the body was found at Mt. View Cemetery.

“Two separate vehicles. He was in another vehicle and shot at her while traveling down the road is the way it appears,” Seale said. “And then after she wrecked, got out of his vehicle, shot her again, and then fled the scene where he came here and shot himself.”

Police said they believe a recent divorce likely led to the murder. Investigators are looking into the cell phones of those involved to try and find more information. Police also said the two involved had some history of domestic issues in the past.
