A married couple found dead in an apparent murder-suicide during a welfare check Monday morning have been identified.
They were William and Judy Wilson of Las Vegas, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.
Las Vegas police have said that evidence inside the home, on the 4400 block of Thompson Circle, indicates that William Wilson, 78, shot his 75-year-old wife before turning the gun on himself. The coroner’s office determined the couple both died of a gunshot wound to the head.
William Wilson’s death was a suicide while Judy Wilson’s death was ruled a homicide, the coroner’s office said Tuesday afternoon. The two were pronounced dead in their living room, where officers found them Monday morning.
