She says she was hit in the head several times. Investigators say it did appear that Greifenstein did have a wound on her head that could have been caused by being hit by a pan.

Peter Greifenstein was shot once in the chest. 

Geuaga County Sheriff's deputies say they had been to the couple's home before.
