WENATCHEE — Police believe local geology sage Charles L. Mason shot and killed his wife Ruth Berthold Mason on Friday, then turned the gun on himself.

Mason, a lecturer, author and frequent tour guide leader, was 81. Wenatchee police say he apparently shot his wife Ruth, 97, in a parked vehicle in the couple’s condominium garage, then took his own life.
