An Antrim Township man was charged with criminal homicide after an incident early Sunday morning at 556 Pensinger Road.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, David Lange, 49, of Antrim Township, called state police in Chambersburg around 2 a.m. Sunday and reported that he had just shot his wife, Kathleen, 47.

Lange told police that he had a gun and was going to kill himself.

Upon arrival at the residence, police detained David Lange and, upon investigation, discovered Kathleen laying on the living room floor. She had suffered a gunshot wound to the front of her neck, with an exit wound in the upper center part of her back near her shoulders, according to an affidavit of probable cause filed with Magisterial District Judge Jody Eyer.

Two 9 mm handguns and a spent 9 mm casing were found in the living room.

Kathleen was transported to Meritus Medical Center, where she died.

According to police, David Lange was "highly intoxicated," with a "strong odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from" him and had slurred speech, bloodshot eyes and required assistance to stand or walk.

David Lange told state police that both he and his wife had been drinking heavily.

Lange, who has been denied bail, is in Franklin County Jail awaiting an Oct. 31 preliminary hearing at 8:15 a.m. at Franklin County Magisterial Judge Central Court before Judge Eyer.
