HARRISON, N.Y. (AP) — Police say the retired police officer who apparently shot and killed his two teenage daughters and himself had talked with his wife about a possible separation.

Harrison police Chief Anthony Marraccini said Monday that Glen Hochman and his wife, Anamarie, had recently had "a family discussion" about separating.

The chief also said that on the day before the killings, Anamarie Hochman reported to police that she and her husband had a nonviolent argument over an $80 cellphone bill. The chief said she did not want police to follow up but rather wanted to "document" the incident.

Police believe the retired White Plains police officer killed his daughters, 17-year-old Alissa and 13-year-old Deanna, and himself on Saturday. His wife and a third daughter were not at home.
