Police: OH woman shot was friend of shooter's wife

LOGAN, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in southeast Ohio say a woman fatally shot by a man who then shot himself was a friend of the man's wife who had accompanied her to the planned meeting in a mall parking lot.

Logan police said 30-year-old Teresa Bickley was killed Wednesday in the parking lot of the Hocking Valley Mall, allegedly by 30-year-old Phillip Loschiavo.

Police said Bickley had accompanied Loschiavo's estranged wife to the parking lot with their two children to exchange some paperwork. That's when Loschiavo shot Bickely three times in the chest, then shot himself in the head.

He remains hospitalized in Columbus in critical condition.

Logan Police Chief Aaron Miller said Loschiavo had blamed Bickley for the break-up of his marriage.
