GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) -- Authorities believe a couple found dead in a Green Valley home died as a result of a murder-suicide.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says deputies arrived at the home Saturday around 5:50 p.m. in response to a 911 call.

They found the bodies of a man and a woman who showed signs of trauma.

Investigators say preliminary evidence indicates the husband killed his wife before committing suicide.

Their names are being held pending notification of next of kin.
