Baer, 70, played Jethro in the 1960s TV series. He called authorities after discovering his live-in girlfriend, Chere Rhodes, 30, at their home Thursday with a gunshot in her chest. She was still conscious, but had left a suicide note. Rhodes was put on life support at a hospital in Reno, but her family took her off it on Sunday.
