WHITESBURG, Ky. (AP) - Authorities in eastern Kentucky say a man and woman have died in an apparent murder-suicide outside of their home.

Letcher County Coroner Renee Campbell tells WYMT-TV (https://bit.ly/2i9h3N5) that Kentucky State Police were called to the home near Deane around 1 a.m. Saturday. She says 27-year-old Mark Mullins and 23-year-old Tiffany Hatton were found dead outside.

Both Mullins and Hatton had gunshot wounds. Campbell says the deceased were a couple who had an infant together.

Investigators haven’t said who they believe fired the gun.

The bodies have been taken to the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Frankfort, where their autopsies will be performed.
