State Police believe Poulston shot and killed Paxton inside Covington Farm and Fuel as part of a domestic dispute. When Poulston went outside and Covington officers arrived, shots were fired, leading to both of their deaths.

The funeral service for Ogilvie will be Saturday, March 19 at noon at Dabney S. Lancaster’s Convention Center.

Funeral services will also be held Saturday for Paxton and Poulston.
