Husband, wife found dead, murder-suicide suspected

TAYLOR, Ark. (AP) - Lafayette County authorities say a husband and his wife have been found dead in what investigators believe is a murder-suicide in southwestern Arkansas.

Sheriff Victor Rose told the Texarkana Gazette that the bodies of 55-year-old Steve Duck and 51-year-old Tonuia Duck of Taylor were found Thursday in rural Lafayette County. Rose says investigators believe Steve Duck killed his wife then himself.

Rose says the two were in the process of divorcing but that a motive for the shooting has not been confirmed.
