Pa. man's drowning suicide after double-stabbing

Posted: Updated:

WEST YORK, Pa. (AP) - A coroner says a southeastern Pennsylvania man committed suicide by purposely driving into the Susquehanna River, a few hours after he allegedly stabbed his estranged wife and another man during a home invasion.

The Lancaster County coroner's office says Monday that surveillance video showed 28-year-old Garrell David Tyler, of York City, accelerating as he drove down a ramp into the river, where he drowned.

The body was found by a fisherman about 9:45 a.m. Sunday who called West Hempfield police.

West York police say Tyler was the only suspect in the stabbings of 25-year-old Ivy Tyler and 28-year-old William Wilson at her home. Both were listed in satisfactory condition at York Hospital.

Ivy Tyler had a protection-from-abuse order against Garrell Tyler, who had been charged in a domestic dispute Oct. 10.
