FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Fort Worth police say a 73-year-old woman and her 76-year-old husband have been found shot to death in their house in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police did not immediately release names of the pair discovered Tuesday morning by their daughter.

Sgt. Steve Enright says the wife may have had dementia and her husband apparently was suffering from some depression. Police say it appears the man shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself.

Officials say their daughter became concerned when she tried contacting her parents and could not reach them Monday night.

Emergency medical personnel say the man and woman were dead at the scene.
