NEW YORK — Police say a husband and wife have been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide in their Brooklyn home.
The New York Police Department said Elsie and Peter Jones' bodies were discovered around 11:30 a.m. Friday in their home on St. Jude Place, in the Canarsie neighborhood. Each had been shot in the head.
Investigators believe the 53-year-old husband killed his 39-year-old wife and then himself.
The Daily News (http://nydn.us/SlLnTx ) reports that he drove a commuter van, while she worked at the pharmaceutical company Pfizer for 17 years.
Friends and relatives tell the newspaper the two had been married since 1999 and have an 8-year-old son, but their union had soured.
The wife's sister, Rachelle Thevenin, says Elsie Jones was trying to get a divorce.
