Alabama triple murder suspect kills self in Fla.

A man sought for killing three people in the Birmingham area committed suicide outside a Florida credit union, the Escambia County Sheriff's Office said.

According to CBS affiliate WKRG, Kenneth Lever took his life outside the Navy Federal Headquarters.

Lever, 51, was thought to be headed to Florida because he is from Pace, Fla.

Gardendale, Ala., Police Chief Mike Walker identified the victims in Wednesday's slayings as 50-year-old Dana Reeves Lever, the suspect's ex-wife.

The other victims were Dana Reeves Lever's sister, 65-year-old Bonnie Reeves Foshee; and Reeves Foshee's husband, 69-year-old Don Austin Foshee.

Lever was just weeks away from standing trial on child sex charges in Pennsylvania.

Court records in York County, Pennsylvania, show he was scheduled to go on trial there on Sept. 11.

Lever was arrested in 2015 on charges that he sexually molested a young girl for more than five years ending in August 2010, sometimes forcing a young boy to participate in the assaults.

Lever had been free on bond awaiting a court date.

Court records show a judge issued an order in December telling Lever to stay away from ex-wife and their daughter, a juvenile. Dana Lever sought the protective order claiming the man was stalking and harassing them, records show.
