Port St. Lucie, FL: Port St. Lucie husband, wife dead in apparent murder-suicide

A husband and wife were found dead in their Port St. Lucie home Wednesday after an apparent murder-suicide, police said.

The bodies were found Wednesday morning inside a home in the 1200 block of Southwest Ingrassina Avenue.

Port St. Lucie police said they received a call from the victim's relative saying Bernstein Noel, 59, claimed he shot his 48-year-old wife, Marie Noel.

When officers arrived, nobody answered the door, so they entered the home and found the couple dead on the bed in the master bedroom. Police said they each had bullet wounds to their head.

Family members said the couple was from Haiti and worked in the medical field.

A motive for the apparent murder-suicide is unknown.
