Tucson police investigate couple's deaths

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) - Tucson police say they are investigating the deaths of a couple as a murder-suicide.

Sgt. Chris Widmer says officers conducted a welfare check at a home on the city's south side early Saturday and found a 34-year-old Daniel Ornelas and a 35-year-old Alicia Carrillo dead.

Widmer says homicide detectives responded, spoke with family members of the couple and examined physical evidence at the scene. They learned the two were in a relationship.

Family members told detectives they became concerned after being unable to contact the couple throughout the evening.

Widmer says preliminary findings indicate Ornelas killed Carrillo and then fatally shot himself. A gun was found near his body.

Detectives were unable to definitively determine how Carrillo died, but they're looking into the possibility that she was strangled.
