Wheatland, NY: Cops: Monroe County couple found dead in apparent murder-suicide

WHEATLAND, N.Y. (AP) — Police are investigating the apparent murder-suicide of a western New York couple in their 80s.

Major Steve Koster of the Monroe County Sheriff's department tells local media the couple's daughter found them dead Tuesday morning in the town of Wheatland, 15 miles southwest of Rochester.

He says investigators believe the husband shot his wife and then himself.

Both had health problems, but Koster says they weren't incapacitated and remained active. No note was found.

The names of the couple haven't been released.
