KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Autopsy reports on Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins were released Monday.

The report showed Belcher had high levels of alcohol in his system when he shot and killed himself at the Chiefs practice facility after shooting Perkins several times at the couple's home.

The report shows the alcohol in his blood registered 179mg on one test and 170mg on another. The legal limit in the state of Missouri is .08 or 80mg.

That means Belcher would have been at more than twice the legal limit when he shot Perkins.
