SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

A second person has died following a domestic dispute in Sullivan County Friday afternoon.     

The Sullivan County sheriff's office confirmed 22-year-old Ricky Neeley died Tuesday afternoon at Holston Valley Medical Center.

Officers say Ricky Neely shot and killed his wife Edith Neeley and shot himself during a domestic dispute Friday.

Sheriff Wayne Anderson says there was not a record of domestic disputes between the couple, but he did say that Edith Neeley wanted out of their three-year marriage and Ricky did not.

According to Anderson the couple had two children, ages two years and seven months.
