Ex-Cop Held in Date-Rape; NYPD Lt. Kills Wife, Self
In the course of an argument yesterday with his wife at their Long Island home yesterday, 19-year-veteran NYPD lieutenant Francis Cole stabbed and shot her to death. Then he smacked his daughter in the face, went upstairs, and blew his brains out. A neighbor called Cole, his wife and four children "an ideal family."
