Horton’s wife tells CBS 11 she learned of his death Saturday morning when a nurse called her using Horton’s cell phone.

The couple had just celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary and were planning to renew their vows.

“He was a man and he had a family and he had people that loved him, and now we’ve lost him and we have a big void in our lives,” said Lisa Horton.

A 15-year-old was also questioned in connection with the murder, but was later released.

Robert and Lisa Horton have two adult children and six grandchildren.
