Woman reportedly shot husband and then herself at Coon Valley home



A Vernon County woman apparently shot her husband several times before killing herself last weekend. 

The sheriff’s office says 47-year-old Tina Schermerhorn was found dead with a self-inflicted wound, when deputies were called to her Coon Valley area home on County Road P Sunday night.  They later found the body of Tina’s husband, 48-year-old Rick Schermerhorn. 

The deaths are still being investigated.  

Online records indicate the couple had been going through divorce proceedings in Vernon County court since late last year.

Rick Schermerhorn died from multiple gunshot wounds, and Tina had one self-inflicted wound.
