November 23, 2019

WATERBURY, Conn. (AP) — Police in Connecticut have identified a married couple found dead in a Waterbury condominium who had apparently suffered gunshot wounds.

Waterbury Police on Friday named the individuals as 48-year-old LaRhonda Jones and 54-year-old Eric Jones.

Authorities say the pair were found in a bedroom Thursday by police after the woman’s sister and her employer became concerned when she didn’t show up for work.

Police obtained a search warrant and gained access to the unit with the help of the property manager.

A handgun was found at the scene. The deaths remain under investigation.

WFSB-TV reports that Eric Jones had served as an officer in the New Haven Police Department before retiring in 2012.

Neighbors told the station that LaRhonda Jones was a pastor at a local church.
