BERRIEN COUNTY, Mich. - The man who apparently killed his wife, a southwestern Michigan radio host, and then killed himself, had recently given his two weeks notice at his job.

Investigators say Eric Stewart had put in his notice Monday to quit his job at the D.C. Cook Nuclear Power Plant.  He had been at the plant for 28 years.  He worked as a production supervisor and supervised contracted work, including the turbine building.  He did not supervise employees.  He did have unescorted clearance at the plant.

Investigators say that Eric did not show any signs of unusual behavior at his job.  He passed monthly behavioral observations and monthly fitness checks, including drug and alcohol tests, prescription drug checks and sleep updates.

Stewart apparently shot his wife, Denise Bohn-Stewart multiple times in their home Tuesday morning and then killed himself in the basement.  The couple's three young children were inside the home and were not injured.  The children discovered their bodies and called 911.

The kids are staying with other family members.  A GoFundMe site has been set up for the children.
