GOOD THUNDER, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say the deaths of a man and a woman in a Good Thunder home are likely a murder-suicide.

The Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Department released preliminary autopsy results Sunday. According to those results, 48-year-old Kimberly Hernandez likely died from someone strangling her. Her husband, 60-year-old Charles Hernandez, also died of strangulation, but authorities believe he killed himself.

A family member found the bodies and called 911 shortly before 11 a.m. Friday.

Neighbor Karen Erickson tells The Free Press of Mankato (https://bit.ly/1PO2huU ) the couple were “great people.”

Kim Hernandez is listed as a city councilwoman on the Good Thunder website.

Good Thunder is about 10 miles south of Mankato.
