WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say the death of a couple whose bodies were found in their New Jersey home is being investigated as an apparent murder-suicide.
Middlesex County prosecutors and Woodbridge police say officers were called to the Woodbridge home shortly before 9 a.m. Friday and found 77-year-old Joanne Perhacs head from a single gunshot wound to the head.
Authorities say 78-year-old Bertlan Perhacs was found nearby with a gunshot wound that police said appeared to have been self-inflicted.
Both were pronounced dead at the scene and autopsies by the county medical examiner were planned. Anyone with information was asked to call county or police investigators.
