Police are charging Benjamin Conway Jr. with criminal homicide in the killing of his wife, Kimberly Jo Conway, at 5228 Meadowcrest Rd. in Baldwin Borough on Nov. 4.

Baldwin Borough police officers were sent to the Meadowcrest home in south Baldwin at around 1:50 a.m. that day for a report of a woman who had been shot, according to Sergeant Scott Scherer of the Allegheny County Police Department's Homicide Unit.

Upon the officers' arrival, they discovered 33-year-old Kimberly Jo dead of an apparent gunshot wound inside of the home.

Also present at the scene were the believed gunman—31-year-old Benjamin—and a relative of the Conways.

The Allegheny County Assessment Web page lists Kimberly Jo and Benjamin as the co-owners of the home since September 2011.

"Conway Jr. was taken into custody and transported to a local hospital, where he is being treated for injuries that were self-inflicted after the shooting," Scherer said in a news release.

County Homicide detectives learned that the Conways had a domestic dispute with the other relative present in the home, Scherer said.

"The relative disarmed Conway Jr. after the shooting and called 911," Scherer said.
