RAMSEY (AP) - Anoka County sheriff's deputies and local police are investigating the deaths of a couple in Ramsey.

Authorities believe the deaths of 67-year-old Caron Margaret Fine and 65-year-old Mitchell Wolfe Fine may be a murder-suicide. A relative called Ramsey police asking officers to check on the couple after receiving an email with suicidal overtones.

Officers went to the home Tuesday and found the two bodies in a bedroom with gunshot wounds to the head. Police say indications at the scene show the woman died before the man.

Anoka County sheriff's officials say a number of cats were also found fatally shot in the home.
