CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials say their investigation shows a Lancaster man shot to death a neighbor he had frequent disputes with last April, but they're not sure how the shooter and his wife wound up dead in their burned out camper.

Senior Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles say it's clear that 64-year-old Gene Sly shot to death his 44-year-old neighbor, David Collins, at about 3 a.m. April 17 at Collins' home.

Police then found the badly-burned bodies of Sly and his wife, Elena, in a burned out camper in the Slys' driveway.

Rundles says it's not clear whether Sly took his wife's life or both committed suicide.

Investigators say the two families had boundary disputes concerning their adjoining properties, but don't know what prompted Sly to kill Collins.
