PORTERVILLE -- The Morgan County Sheriff's Department is investigating a possible murder-suicide that was discovered Thursday by a family member.
A spokesman for the sheriff's office was tight-lipped about the incident, refusing to confirm the investigation or an address where the incident occurred.
A family member told the Standard-Examiner that the man and woman had not answered phone calls for several days and the man's son went to the house today. When no one answered the door, the son broke in and found his father and step-mother dead. The family member said the deceased couple have a history of domestic violence incidents and the woman had been charged with the offense in the last several years.
The Standard-Examiner will post updates on this website as information becomes available.
