GREEN VALLEY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities have released the names of a married couple found dead in a Green Valley home in an apparent homicide-suicide.

Pima County Sheriff's officials say the bodies have been identified as 77-year-old George Phillips and his 76-year-old wife Alice Phillips.

Investigators say George Phillips may have had a terminal illness.

They say the couple died from gunshot wounds, but no other details have been released yet.

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

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