LEWISVILLE (1080 KRLD) - The man Lewisville police say shot and killed a mother in front of her children, before shooting himself, has died. 

Police say Daryl Stegall kicked in the door of the apartment belonging to Kishana Jeffers on Thanksgiving and shot her to death. He then stepped out into the breezeway and shot himself in the head. 

After several days on life support, Stegall died Sunday. 

Reports suggest Jeffers called police at least five times in the past seven months. Each time reporting an angry outburst of Stegall's but failing to make a formal report. 

Paige Flink is the CEO of the Family Place and says unfortunately she hears stories like this all too often.

"So often the woman love the man that's beating her and wants it to go back to when they met. When I see a situation like this I think, the woman must have believed him every time he apologized," she says.

Flink says its always best to call police and get them involved so they can get the victim the support they need. 

"When a man says he is going to kill himself as well as the woman, that's extremely serious. It proves that he thinks so little about his own life, that taking someone else's won't be a big deal," Flink says.

Jeffers three children all under the age of 10, were present when their mother was shot.
