There is a heavy police and fire presence at a house on Granite Way in the Stonegate subdivision in Wetumpka. Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin confirmed three people are dead and two are in surgery after an apparent murder-suicide.
According to Franklin, Bob Orsi shot and killed his wife, Charlene Ann Orsi, and one of their four children. Bob Orsi then set the house on fire before shooting and killing himself. Two of the children shot were transported for surgery.
Wetumpka Fire Chief Greg Willis confirmed the fire department responded to the house for a fire around 6 p.m.
According to court documents, Bob and Charlene Ann Orsi were married in Anchorage, Alaska, in 1994. Documents show Charlene Ann Orsi filed for divorce June 28 of this year, only nine days ago, citing irreconcilable differences. Bob Orsi denied those claims in an opposing motion on July 2. Charlene had requested full custody of the four children.
