UPDATED: Attorney General mulls divorce as factor in Barrington murder-suicide

BARRINGTON — Investigators will look into whether divorce plans may have caused a husband to shoot and kill his wife before turning a gun on himself Saturday, according to Senior Assistant Attorney General Janice Rundles.
 
 
“The indications are that they were planning to divorce, but I do not know whether anything had been filed,” Rundles said.
 
 
Rundles said investigators will look into the status of their relationship to help piece together what may have led up to the deaths of Glenn and Pauline Grassett of 60 Layne Farm Road.
 
 
After completing the autopsies Monday, N.H. Medical Examiner Dr. Thomas Andrew determined Glenn Grassett, 61, shot his wife, Pauline, 44, “multiple times” before shooting himself once in the head, according to a joint release by N.H. Attorney General Joseph A. Foster, N.H. State Police Col. Robert L. Quinn and Barrington Police Chief Richard Conway.
 
 
A Glock 9-mm pistol was recovered with the two bodies at the home. Members of state and local police continue to investigate the matter as a homicide, according to the release.
 
 
Visiting hours for Pauline E. Grassett are scheduled for Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Kent & Pelczar Funeral Home, 77 Exeter St., Newmarket, according to the funeral home.
