STURGEON BAY (AP) — A memorial service will be held Thursday for a mother and her two children killed in a murder-suicide outside of Green Bay.

Police say Denis Bay fatally shot his 44-year-old wife, Michelle, and their two children, 14-year-old Andrea and 10-year-old Daniel, before taking his own life Friday at their De Pere home.

Police are continuing to investigate possible motives. De Pere Police Chief Derek Beiderwieden said investigators are learning more about the circumstances leading up to the deaths but he declined to elaborate.

A memorial service will be held Thursday evening at Sturgeon Bay Moravian Church. A separate service is planned that morning at the church for Denis Bay.

Court records show the couple was going through a divorce.
