Clare Co. Deputy, Sergeant Resign Following Murder-Suicide Response

Two Clare County Sheriff Office employees resigned following a murder-suicide that happened last month.

The sheriff’s office tells us Nicole Bartel was shot and killed by her husband, who later took his own life.

Clare County Sheriff John Wilson says he was concerned about why one of his deputies and sergeant did not respond to this initial call sooner than they did.

Sheriff Wilson does say it would not have changed the unfortunate circumstances of the situation.

Coming up tonight on 9&10 News, we will bring you more details on these two resignations as we talk with Sheriff Wilson.
