Great Falls murder victim and killer identified

Posted: Updated:

GREAT FALLS - The woman who died on Saturday in a murder-suicide in Great Falls has been identified as Ronda Dee "Roxie" Ray of Great Falls.

Michael "Mick" Willey of Lincoln has been identified as the other person who died.

Both were taken to Benefis Health System and was later pronounced dead.

Cascade County Attorney Josh Racki confirmed on Monday that it was a murder-suicide. Each died from a single gunshot wound.

Ray was 42 years old; Willey was 56.

The incident happened at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday at a home on the 700 block of 20th Street North.

According to the Blackfoot Valley Dispatch, Willey had been arrested twice in recent weeks after allegedly punching a woman - fracturing her skull and bones in her face - and violating a no-contact order. We have not yet been able to confirm whether the woman, in that case, was Ray.

According to the Montana Department of Corrections, Willey was convicted on a charge of assault with a weapon in Lewis & Clark County in 2017 and received a three-year deferred sentenced.
