Man, wife and stepson die in Sarasota murder-suicide

A man shot and killed his wife and stepson.

NOKOMIS, Fla. -- Three people are dead and two others hurt in an apparent double murder and suicide in Sarasota County, authorities confirm.

Law enforcement was called just after 11 p.m. Monday, Oct. 2, to a home in the area of Kenwood Avenue and Venetia Street on a report of a shooting, according to a news release.

Deputies said there was a domestic disturbance in front of the home between Antony Isrig, 28, and his wife, Susan Rutigliano-Garcia, 49. A neighbor saw Isrig punch his wife, deputies said.

The couple ran back inside. Neighbors could hear shouting, then gunshots.

A neighbor approached the door to help, and Rutigliano-Garcia's 17-year-old daughter ran out. She had multiple injuries, including a gunshot wound.

Isrig left the home, got into a vehicle and  struck the neighbor who had attempted to help. The vehicle also struck a parked car across the street. Isrig then got out of the vehicle, armed himself and ran back into the home. Then neighbors heard another gunshot.

Investigators found Rutigliano-Garcia and her 18-year-old son, Matthew Beagle, had been shot and killed. Isrig was also dead from apparent gunshot wounds. He was holding a shotgun.

The neighbor and Rutigliano-Garcia's daughter was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and is expected to recover. The neighbor was treated for minor injuries and released.
