A Louisville man shot his wife to death and then turned the gun on himself in their home.
That’s the preliminary finding following autopsies on Steven R. Adkins, 54, and Rebecca A. Adkins, 53, according to a spokeswoman with the Blount County Sheriff’s Office.
A relative found the bodies Sunday, according to Marian O’Briant.
Authorities responded 8:30 p.m. Sunday to the Chandler Road residence, according to O’Briant.
O’Briant said officers found the bodies of the couple inside. She said authorities were unsure how long the couple had been dead.
