PENNSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Prosecutors say an Iraq war veteran suspected of killing his ex-wife and five of her relatives has committed suicide in the woods near his suburban Philadelphia home.

Montgomery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman says police found Bradley William Stone's body at around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday about a half-mile from his Pennsburg home.

She says he died of self-inflicted cutting wounds to the center of his body.

The discovery came amid an intense manhunt after prosecutors say the 35-year-old went on a rampage Monday at three homes a few miles apart.

It was the second major manhunt to transfix Pennsylvania in recent months. Eric Frein spent 48 days at large in the Poconos after the September ambush slaying of a state trooper.

Stone's neighbors say they're relieved he can't harm anyone else.
