New documents show that Ivo Colucci shot and killed his wife, Doris, inside Colucci Jewelry Store on Rivers Avenue last week.

That report shows Colucci met with officers outside as they responded to that store Friday afternoon. Ivo reportedly told officers the gun was inside and later handed over the shell casings, telling those officers he picked them up after shooting his wife in the head.

It was also revealed that Colucci gave the officers several reasons why he shot his wife.

Family members told a judge over the weekend that Colucci suffers from dementia. “Mr. Colucci was involved in a probate matter in Dorchester County as to his mental capacity, and there was an ongoing Department of Social Services investigation regarding the ill treatment of him in his home,” Attorney Chris Lizzi said.

We asked for copies of those documents filed in probate court and with the Department of Social Services. We have not yet heard back.
