Cape Girardeau father charged with killing wife and son

CAPE GIRAREAU, Mo. (AP) - A Cape Girardeau man is facing two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of his wife and son.

The Cape Girardeau County prosecuting attorney said George Edwin Joseph was charged with murdering his wife, 57-year-old Mary Joseph, and 18-year-old son, Matthew Joseph, while they slept May 30.

Joseph was hospitalized after the shooting with a gunshot wound to the head.

The Southeast Missourian reports a probable cause statement said Joseph was depressed and facing "significant financial issues" that affected several other individuals. Police say Joseph told them he shot his wife and son so they would not face the shame of financial ruin.

Joseph is in custody on a $5 million cash-only bond.
