An investigation is underway into a murder suicide in Payne County. Stillwater Police say 37-year-old Albert Staats killed his ex-girlfriend Christina Pool, before turning the gun on himself.

Pool won a protective order against Staats a few days ago. She was shot in the head and chest. Police say Staats picked up the phone and told a dispatcher he was going to kill himself.

Three other women had protective orders against Staats since 1999.
