BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) - Authorities have ruled the deaths of a couple at their Southeast Texas home a murder-suicide.

Beaumont police late Tuesday identified the pair as 57-year-old Mark Pelligrin and his 55-year-old wife, Kathy Pelligrin. Investigators say the husband apparently shot his wife, then turned the gun on himself.

The bodies were discovered Monday by a relative when Mark Pelligrin failed to show up for work and a fellow employee raised concerns about his whereabouts.

Beaumont police say the couple wed two years ago and apparently were having marital problems.
