JERICHO, Vt. (AP) - Vermont State Police say a Jericho couple found dead inside their home Wednesday died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

Authorities say autopsy results confirmed the cause of the deaths of Thomas and Christine Dipietro, both 59.

Police say an investigation revealed that the vent tubing for their home’s heating unit became detached, causing the furnace to vent into the residence.

Investigators say the home did not have a carbon monoxide detector.

Co-workers alerted police when the couple did not show up for work. Firefighters responded Wednesday morning and found the couple dead and high levels of carbon dioxide inside the home.
