    Police in New Hampshire say a man killed himself after shooting his wife in Rochester.

    A 47-year-old Rochester man shot and killed himself around 6:40 a.m. Tuesday after he shot his 45-year-old wife, according to a news release from police.

    Rochester Police Chief Paul Toussaint said that the department received a 911 call from a woman who lives on Sunrise Drive. She said that she was shot by her husband, and that he had shot and killed himself.

    The woman was brought to Portsmouth Regional Hospital with serious injuries, and the man was pronounced dead at the scene, according to police.

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.
