Man, woman die in murder-suicide

A man and a woman were killed in an apparent murder-suicide in Belmont on Tuesday afternoon, Belmont police said.

The deaths were reported around 3:50 p.m. when a coworker went to check on the man, who had not shown up for work, and found the two dead in an apartment at the Chronicle Mill Apartments on East Catawba Street, police said.

Police would not identify the people who died, but Capt. Matthew Sherrill said the two apparently met because they both lived in the apartments.

Sherrill declined to say how the two died or whether a weapon was used.

No further information was released.
