Milford police release murder-suicide 911 call

MILFORD - Police have released the recording of a 911 call made moments after the discovery of a gruesome murder-suicide in Milford.

Police say Kenneth Fox stabbed and killed his wife Catherine, 51, at their home on Branca Court in September.

Authorities say he also stabbed their dog Rocky thirteen times while he tried to protect her. The dog survived the attack.

Officials say Fox then hung himself in his garage.

Police say Fox's brother, Frank, called 911 from the scene.

Shortly before the murder-suicide, Fox's wife had reportedly filed for divorce and Fox had lost his job.

Authorities say the couple was having financial troubles and their home was almost in foreclosure.
