A nine-hour standoff between Peoria police and a man who allegedly killed his wife is over. Authorities say the man is hospitalized after shooting himself just before 9:30 last night. The situation started in Pekin early Monday morning when authorities say the suspect forced his wife into a car. Her body was found in the parking garage of Saint Francis Medical Center Tuesday morning, and police tracked her husband to his home where the standoff took place.
