A Starke County man remains in critical condition at an Illinois hospital after he shot himself following a pursuit Friday. Indiana State Police report Gary Chavez, of Knox, is also accused of killing his estranged wife, 50 year old Kimberly Chavez, who was found dead in his home. Chavez reportedly left his Knox residence on Friday afternoon in a personal vehicle, then car-jacked a total of three vehicles, two in Starke County and one in Porter County, and was pursued by authorities from multiple agencies until he ultimately lost control of the vehicle he was driving in Crown Point and got stuck in gravel between I-65 and the 109th exit. An autopsy on Kimberly Chavez is expected today.
