UWCHLAND, Pa. (AP) - Authorities say the deaths of an elderly Philadelphia-area man and woman appear to have been a murder-suicide.

The Chester County district attorney’s office said the bodies of 79-year-old Russell Wisler and 77-year-old Roxanne Wisler were found Wednesday in their home in Uwchlan (YEW’-klin) Township.

Police said the woman suffered from dementia and the husband had been having severe health issues after surviving a bout of cancer.

The district attorney’s office said an investigation by local police and county detectives indicates that the man shot his wife and then himself.

Officials said the Wisler had asked that their privacy be respected as they grieve for their parents.
