FISHERSVILLE, Va. (AP) - Police have identified a couple who died in an apparent murder-suicide at a nursing home in Fishersville.

The Augusta County Sheriff’s Office tells media outlets that investigators believe 84-year-old Weldon Knight fatally shot his wife, 83-year-old Betty Knight, and then killed himself. A handgun was found at the scene.

The shootings occurred around 11 a.m. Saturday in a private room at Shenandoah Nursing & Rehab.

The sheriff’s office says Betty Knight was admitted to the facility last October. The couple had been married for 63 years.
