BROOKLYN, Ohio (AP) - Records show that an Ohio couple who died after the husband killed his wife and 10-year-old daughter and then was fatally shot by police had just recently emerged from bankruptcy.

Documents filed by Kevin and Katherina Allen in federal bankruptcy court in Cleveland last year indicate they owed $60,000 to various creditors, including a $20,000 hospital bill.

Other creditors included several credit card companies and two other hospitals.

Records show the bankruptcy filing was closed less than a month ago, on March 28.

Records also show that Kevin Allen filed for bankruptcy in 1991 and 2004, and Katherina Allen filed for bankruptcy in 2000.

Kevin Allen also wounded the couple's other 10-year-old daughter during the Thursday night shooting inside a crowded Cracker Barrel restaurant in the northeastern Ohio town of Brooklyn.
