A Connecticut legislative task force that’s discussing ways to improve domestic violence laws is holding off from examining a West Haven murder-suicide.

Rep. Mae Flexer says the case remains under investigation. Once that’s complete, she says the House Speaker’s Task Force on Domestic Violence will decide whether to look into the Jan. 17 incident.

West Haven police say 42-year-old Selami Ozdemir shot his wife, 25-year-old Shengyl Rasim, to death and killed himself hours after Ozdemir was arrested for the second time in four months on domestic violence charges.

Police say Ozdemir was able to post $25,000 bail and returned to his home, violating orders to stay away from his wife.

State prosecutors are already looking into how the case was handled.
