AUSTIN, Texas -- Monday the medical examiner in Kansas City released autopsy results for NFL linebacker Jovan Belcher and his girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins. They show Belcher was legally drunk when he shot Perkins nine times.

Perkins graduated from Anderson High School in Austin in 2009.

The report says Perkins was shot in the neck, chest, abdomen, hip, back, leg and hand.

Belcher then drove to the Kansas City Chiefs' practice facility and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager.

His blood-alcohol level was .17 -- more than twice the amount considered legally drunk. The medical examiner says it was probably even higher when he shot Perkins.
