SAKS, AL (WBRC) -

Anniston police have confirmed the causes of death for a Saks couple killed last month to be a murder-suicide.

Police said Friday, April 5 that Darren Wilson stabbed and killed his wife, Doris Wilson, then fatally stabbed himself inside a home on Sunday, March 10.

Officers surrounded the home on Asbury Avenue after getting a 911 call reporting a stabbing inside the residence.

"We had a witness with information that there was a possibility there was at least one deceased female inside, so we knew that early on," Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham said.

The standoff lasted for about six hours until officers deployed gas inside the home and went in. Police sent in a robot and then realized that two people inside the home were both dead, apparently of stab wounds.
