Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Blount County sheriff's office said preliminary results of autopsies on the bodies of a couple found dead in their home in Louisville show their deaths are consistent with murder-suicide.

Marian O'Briant said in an email that it appears 54-year-old Steven Adkins shot 53-year-old Rebecca Adkins, then shot himself.

O'Briant said a family member found the bodies Sunday night. It wasn't clear how long they had been dead.
