HIALEAH, Fla. (AP) - Police say a man strangled his wife to death and then killed himself in their South Florida apartment.

The Miami Herald (https://hrld.us/1KCJnPK ) reports that the bodies of 40-year-old Gilma Martinez and 45-year-old Oscar Mendoza of Hialeah were found inside their apartment by authorities Wednesday morning after relatives of the couple called 911.

Hialeah police spokesman Sgt. Eddie Rodríguez says the couple had been together for 21 years and there were no previous reports of abuse.

The couple had four offspring, two of whom were still living in the apartment with them. None were believed to have been present during the incident.

Authorities were called after relatives of the couple arrived inside the apartment and saw the two bodies.
