Police in Arizona say the widower of former Maricopa County attorney Allister Adel killed two women before turning the gun on himself during a holiday party Christmas Eve, according to reports.

Officers responded to a shooting around 11:30 p.m. near 2nd Avenue and Bethany Home Road. When they arrived, they found two women who had been shot. Both were rushed to the hospital and later died from their injuries. They were later identified as 47-year-old Maryalice Cash and 83-year-old Cynthia Domini. Detectives say the suspect, identified as 47-year-old David De Nitto, was then found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Property records revealed that Adel and De Nitto lived at the home during her tenure as county attorney. Police also confirmed that Cash, who goes by the name “Molly,” and De Nitto were in a romantic relationship together and that Domini was the Cash’s mother.

Homicide detectives believe that all three were at a holiday gathering at the home when an argument broke out which ended in shots being fired.
