domestic dispute leads to double murder and suicide at san jose state university

Crazy news out of the Bay Area about a double murder and suicide at San Jose State University, where a 54-year-old man killed his wife and her friend, and then himself, as a result of a domestic dispute: SJSU shooting: 3 who died ID'd as student, 25; her husband, 54; another student, 26.

The killer, Napoleon Lavarias Caliguiran, shot himself after fatally shooting his wife, SJSU student Marcory Tarlit Caliguiran, and her classmate Thomas Kyle Williams, as the two sat in a car at a school parking garage. Caliguiran was found gravely wounded from a self-inflicted gunshot, a short distance away. He died at the hospital.
They were barely three weeks shy of graduating with business degrees from San Jose State. Cindy Caliguiran and Kyle Williams were study partners, friends say, nothing more. She probably just offered him a ride home after an evening class on campus.

Waiting with a gun on the fifth floor of the campus garage was her husband -- a Silicon Valley engineer more than twice her age. A classmate heard the screams -- then gunfire -- reverberate through the concrete parking structure.

Within minutes, police found Cindy Caliguiran and Williams dead, shot repeatedly, in the front seat of her black 2005 Mercedes. Napoleon "Nappy" Caliguiran lay next to the car, mortally wounded from a self-inflicted gunshot.

On Thursday, shocked students and faculty members learned the identities of the first San Jose State students ever killed on campus -- both honor students, both married, one with a job at a major accounting firm waiting.

Meanwhile, university officials say that Cindy Caliguiran and Kyle Williams, who were less than three weeks from graduation, will be posthumously awarded bachelor's degree in accounting: SJSU students killed in shooting to get posthumous diplomas.
