PHOENIX (AP) - Authorities have released the names of a recently divorced couple who were found dead at a north Phoenix home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Phoenix police say it appears 52-year-old Blaine Palmer fatally shot 52-year-old Jennifer Palmer before turning the gun on himself Tuesday.

They say Jennifer Palmer’s 14-year-old daughter returned home about 4 p.m. Tuesday to find her stepfather dead in a bedroom with a gun nearby.

Police say the girl’s mother was found dead in the garage while seated in a car with multiple bullet holes in the vehicle.

They say the Palmers’ divorce was finalized Monday and Blaine Palmer was supposed to be out of the home within a few days.

Neighbors told police that they heard gunshots around 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
