The man who was with Diego Martinez's wife when he returned home from work and began shooting, killing her, has also died, police say.

And Martinez has committed suicide, they say.

Omar Salazar, 31, was with Martha Nava De Martinez, 40, also called Alicia, on Friday morning at her home in the 7300 block of Yellow Pine.

Mrs. Martinez died at the scene; Salazar was taken to a hospital where he later died.

Martinez was charged with murder and went on the run; his body was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound Sunday afternoon in the 700 block of West 27th Street, police say.
