A South Carolina man was distraught over drawn-out divorce proceedings and a recent order to sell a home he co-owned with his ex-wife when he killed the woman’s attorney and then himself, authorities said Thursday.

Jerry Dean Crenshaw shot 61-year-old J. Redmond Coyle several times Wednesday afternoon in a parking lot behind Coyle’s downtown Pickens, S.C., office, Police Chief Tommy Ellenburg said.
