Bethel Township, PA: Police ID couple killed in murder-suicide

Authorities on Tuesday identified the elderly couple killed in a murder-suicide the day before in Delaware County.

Adolph Markiewicz, 89, and Louise Markiewicz, 91, were found dead 3:40 p.m. Monday by their son in their township home on Princess Anne Drive near Naamans Creek Road, Bethel Township Police Chief Thomas Worrilow said.

Worrilow declined to say which spouse fired the fatal gunshots. They were married for more than 60 years and lived in the township for five decades, and both were in "failing health," he said.
