SALEM, Ind. (AP) - Authorities have identified three people found dead in a southern Indiana home as a couple and their teenage son.

State Police say the Washington County coroner identified the victims as 58-year-old Danny G. Newlin, 41-year-old Kelley Kay Newlin and their 14-year-old son, Austin Newlin. The preliminary cause of death for all three is gunshot wounds.

Their bodies were found Sunday in their home near Salem, about 30 miles northwest of Louisville, Kentucky.

Police said Monday they believe a man who was living with the family committed the slayings.

Monroe County Coroner Joani Shields said Tuesday the cause of death for that man, 47-year-old Richard Lee Burton Jr., has been preliminarily ruled as a gunshot wound from an apparent suicide. His body found Monday in a pickup truck near Bloomington.
