Man killed wife, then himself in apartment, authorities say

A man shot and killed his wife and then turned the weapon on himself, authorities said.   

Nadege St. Preux, 43, was shot by Terence Cheatham, 47, who then killed himself, the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office and Abington Township police said Tuesday.  

 Abington police were called to the Meadowbrook Apartments on Monday after complaints from neighbors about "a foul order" and entered the unit, authorities said. Authorities haven't said when they believe the deaths occurred.   

Autopsies completed Tuesday concluded that the woman was killed by multiple gunshot wounds to the head and the man died of a single self-inflicted wound to the head, authorities said.

A firearm was found next to the man's body, they said.
