A couple was found dead inside their Ahwatukee Foothills home Monday afternoon after an apparent murder-suicide.
Police were called to a home in the 3700 block of East Long Lake Road Monday shortly after noon to respond to an injured person.
The doors of the home were all locked but police forced entry and located the couple in the bedroom of the home. Barbara J. Mahowald, 56, and her husband Stanley E. Mahowald, 61, were found dead, said Sgt. Steve Martos of the Phoenix Police Department.
After investigating the scene police believe this to be a murder-suicide incident.
