KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - An autopsy shows that Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend nine times before he killed himself.

The Jackson County Medical Examiner released the results of autopsies performed on Belcher and his 22-year-old girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins, following their deaths on Dec. 1.

Police say Belcher killed Perkins at the couple's Kansas City home, then drove to the team's practice site and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager.

The autopsy report says Perkins was shot in the neck, chest, abdomen, hip, back, leg and hand. Belcher and Perkins had an infant daughter, and their families are fighting for custody of her.
