MESA, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in Mesa have released the names of an estranged husband and wife who have been found dead in an apparent murder-suicide.

Mesa police say the bodies of 40-year-old David Joseph Engel and 45-year-old April Louise Engel were discovered early Tuesday at a Mesa apartment.

The couple had been married for 11 years.

Police say it appears David Engel shot his estranged wife before himself.

They say April Engel recently served divorced papers on her husband and had moved out of their apartment, but returned Monday night for an unknown reason.

Police say the woman’s daughter went to check on her mother after April Engel failed to return to a friend’s residence where she had been staying.

They say that’s when the daughter saw the two bodies and called police.
