BEAVERCREEK, Ore. (AP) - The Clackamas County sheriff’s office says a 72-year-old Beavercreek, Oregon, man and his 62-year-old wife have been found dead in what is described as a murder-suicide.

In a statement, Sgt. Nathan Thompson said deputies went to the couple’s home Monday evening to check on their welfare. The sheriff’s office had received a 911 call from a woman who said she received a message from her stepfather indicating he had killed her mother and would be killing himself.

Thompson said Tuesday that deputies found a man and woman dead in the home.

The spokesman identified the couple as Charles Liljenberg and his wife Linda Liljenberg. Thompson says both had been diagnosed with unspecified illnesses. A message and additional evidence at the home led investigators to conclude that the couple had made an agreement to end their lives due to the illnesses.
