LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a married couple was found dead in an apparent murder-suicide earlier this week in southwest Las Vegas.
Authorities say family members called for help about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, saying they couldn't get in touch with the pair.
Police say they went inside the home on Thunder Spirit Street and found the two dead of apparent gunshot wounds.
Detectives say the couple was separated, but it appears the husband visited the wife at her home to talk about their relationship. That's when police say the husband shot his wife and then shot himself.
Clark County coroner's officials have not yet released the names of the two.
