VERNON, Conn. (AP) - Police have identified a man and a woman who were found dead in a Vernon apartment in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police say a maintenance worker found the bodies of 53-year-old Allison Peterson and 59-year-old Eric Danziger Wednesday morning.

Police say evidence suggests that Danziger killed Peterson and then himself. They say the two were in a relationship.

The state medical examiner’s office says an autopsy showed that Danziger died of a suicide by hanging.

It’s not clear how Peterson died.

The investigation is ongoing.
