Names released in murder-suicide near Carthage

The Jasper County Sheriff's Office released more details on what appears to be a murder-suicide at 5920 Stone Hill Loop, just south of Carthage.

Deputies found 55-year-old Tony Kernel and his son, Wesley Kernel, 9, and daughter Timber Kernel 7 dead just before 11 a.m. today. Deputies believe Kernel shot his children and then turned the gun on himself.

Investigators believe the shootings take place Friday night.

The Sheriff's Office was called after a neighbor checked on Kernel when he did not arrive for work.
