26 year old Amy and Jeff Yager met serving their country in the military... They supposedly were a happy couple.. But officials say something led to murder.

Both Amy and Jeff had been out on the town in separate groups Thursday night. They ended up home alone in their bedroom in the 61 hundred block of Hatfield.

Jeff had been driven home by a designated driver, who is also a federal officer for the Department of Energy.

The friend had then taken Jeff's truck home.

Officials say they believe Jeff shot Amy... And then walked a mile and a half to his friends house.

Lt. Gary Trupe with Potter-Randall Special Crimes says, "Jeff went over to his friends house to tell him that what was going on, the friend drove that pick up back to the scene and parked it where it was at. He told jeff to stay in the truck while he went inside the house."
