The shootings happened in an attached garage to their residence at 13-06 East Main in Princeton. Mercer County Sheriff Steve Stockman has classified the shootings as a murder-suicide.
The Moglers were the only two persons involved and no other foul play is suspected. Sheriff Stockman said it was Mogler who shot his wife first, then took his own life. He noted the problem stemmed from what he called a domestic situation.
A nine millimeter hand gun was found at the scene and is believed to be the weapon used for the shootings.
Sheriff Stockman said the couple had two children who were not at home at the time of the shooting. He said they are safe with other family members. Ages of the two children were not available this morning to the sheriff's office but they are students in the Princeton school district.
Sheriff Stockman said he met this morning, before classes began, with school teachers to explain the situation to them. And Stockman stated the Princeton school district is making grief counseling available to any students or staff who feel the need.
The sheriff's office received a call prior to 6 o'clock last night regarding gun shots heard at a location in Princeton. Upon arrival, authorities found the two bodies.
