Joint services will be held Sunday for David and Gwendolyn Wooding, estranged husband and wife, who died Wednesday in a murder-suicide at 440 Locust st.

The funeral will be at 2 p.m. in the Westley Temple Church with the Rev. James Dunn officiating. Mrs. Wooding will be buried in Glendale Cemetery; Mr. Wooding in a Garrison, W.Va. cemetery.

Coroner William J. Pittinger ruled that Mr. Wooding killed his wife and then himself in the bedroom of his wife's home. They had been separated for several weeks prior to the incident.
