The third victim of a triple shooting in Cabell County has died. Milton Police say Lara Carder died Wednesday at Cabell Huntington Hospital.

Investigators believe Carder was gunned down by her estranged husband Jason. She was running from their Milton home after her husband allegedly shot 38-year-old Robert Shockley. Neighbors say before she was shot, Lara Carder went down to her knees -- either to beg for mercy or to pray.

Jason Carder also apparently killed himself after returning to the house. Sergeant K-L Jividen give the ages for the couple but neighbors said they were both in their late 20's.

Shockley was from California, but police haven't yet determined his hometown. They say he was in West Virginia for some sort of conference but his connection to the Carders is not clear.

A 15-month-old boy found in a high chair inside the house was unharmed and is now in the care of family members.
