SARVER, Pa. (AP) - A deputy coroner says a man and his ex-wife were found dead in a Pennsylvania home’s basement in an apparent murder-suicide.

John Hanovick, of the Buffalo County Coroner’s office, says he pronounced the 43-year-old woman and 44-year-old man dead at 10:45 a.m. Thursday.

He says the two are divorced and the woman had been living at the home with her two children.

Hanovick says the woman had multiple gunshot wounds and the man had a single gunshot wound.

No other details were immediately available.

The shooting comes nearly two weeks after a central Pennsylvania man killed his wife and three children, and then himself.

Mark Short Sr., his wife Megan Short and the children were found dead Aug. 6 in their home in Sinking Spring. Officials say they’d been having domestic disputes and were ending their marriage.
