UPDATE: Sheriff’s officials say death of couple at south Sacramento County home was murder-suicide

Sacramento County sheriff’s officials say detectives have determined that the deaths of a man and woman at a south area home was a murder-suicide.

About 9:30 a.m., a relative reported finding the bodies inside a home in the 8000 block of Tevrin Way, which is near Elk Grove-Florin and Calvine roads. Sacramento County sheriff’s deputies arrived at the home, along with medical personnel who pronounced the man and woman deceased. Deputies went door-to-door in the neighborhood to find out what they could about the deceased.

Detectives believe the man killed his wife and then himself, according to a Sheriff’s Department news release. Officials said no motive has been identified, and detectives do not believe anyone else was involved.

The names of the couple have not been released pending notification of family.
