Glendale Police have identified a couple found dead in an apparent murder-suicide Monday night.

They responded to a check welfare request about 9:30 p.m. Monday, at a home near 63rd Ave and Olive.

Police say the evidence shows that 86-year-old George Deckard shot his wife, 86-year-old Margaret Deckard, and then shot himself.

The Deckards were apparently dealing with various medical issues. George Deckard left a handwritten note behind.

The next of kin has been notified.
