A Long Island husband shot and killed his decades-long wife in their home — and the couple’s 21-year-old daughter was the one who found their bodies, police say. Nassau County police said Friday that Douglas Kelly, 54, murdered his 50-year-old wife Dawn with a shotgun in their Bellmore home the night before, then killed himself. Authorities say they believe the weapon was purchased legally. The Kellys had been married for 25 years. Cops were called to the scene by the couple’s daughter. The daughter told authorities she had gotten a call from her mother earlier Thursday warning her not to come home because she and the father were fighting.

They say he had been disabled for more than 20 years and he and his wife often fought over money. The nature of Douglas Kelly’s disability wasn’t immediately clear.
