- Associated Press - Wednesday, January 22, 2014

NATICK, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors and police say the November deaths of a Natick couple have been ruled a murder-suicide.

Middlesex District Attorney Marian Ryan and Natick Police Chief James Hicks announced Wednesday that 64-year-old Shirley Ju was allegedly killed by her husband, 64-year-old Chester Ju, who then took his own life.

Ryan said the state medical examiner's office has ruled that Shirley Ju's death was a homicide by multiple sharp force injuries, and Chester Ju's death was a suicide by hanging.

Their bodies were found at their home on Winter Street Nov. 2.
