KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) - Kansas City, Kansas, police say two people found dead in a sport utility vehicle last weekend succumbed to fumes from the vehicle’s faulty exhaust system.

The Kansas City Star (https://bit.ly/2pn8G5X ) reports that police have ruled the deaths of 26-year-old Carolyn Williams-Cottier and 30-year-old Trevor Roth of Dodge City as accidental.

Their bodies were found Sunday in a vehicle parked outside a retail store.

Police said it appeared the vehicle’s exhaust system wasn’t working properly, causing toxic, invisible and odorless carbon monoxide to build up inside the vehicle.
