Documents show the couple got married in 1987 and separated on Valentine's Day of this year.
Diane Carroll filed for divorce Monday from her husband, Shawn Carroll, listing irreconcilable differences. The next day, police say Shawn Carroll shot his wife in their Stockdale Estates home on De Colores Court, then shot himself.
Bakersfield Police Sergeant Joe Grubbs said, "At this point in the investigation police believe this is a murder-suicide."
Diane Carroll signed divorce papers February 5. She listed February 14 as the date of separation, but didn't file the paperwork until March 9.
In the documents, Diane Carroll requested her husband pay spousal support and her attorney's fees. She also stated she was unaware of the full extent of their financial situation.
Diane Carroll was on the Friends of the Kern County Fair board and Shawn Carroll was the operations manager of Valley Valve in Bakersfield.
Police wouldn't say if they'd been called to the Carroll's home in the past.
"There's a lot of questions that still need to be answered. We don't know all the answers. Investigators are still working on this incident and we'll provide more information as it's available and we're sure about the information that we're releasing," said Grubbs.
The coroner's office says Shawn Carroll died of self-inflicted shotgun wound. Diane Carroll was taken to Kern Medical Center, where she died.
Anthony Azemika is listed on court documents as Diane Carroll's attorney. His office says he won't comment.
"Unfortunately in may parts of Kenya when the sun goes down their studies stop completely," said Katie Allen, PG&E spokesperson. "So access to these solar suitcases will allow them to continue their studies in the evening and early morning hours."
