NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Norfolk police say a man killed his wife and then himself two days before the final hearing on the couple's divorce.

Police found the bodies of 63-year-old Robert Klosterman and his 57-year-old wife Rebecca inside the couple's home Sunday. Police said Monday that Klosterman shot his wife and then himself.

According to court records, a final hearing on the couple's divorce had been scheduled for Tuesday.

Robert Klosterman was the first commander of the U.S. Navy's John C. Stennis nuclear carrier.
