MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - Police in Atlanta's northwest suburbs have ruled the deaths of two people found fatally shot inside a house as a murder-suicide.

The bodies of a man and a woman were found Wednesday evening inside the home in east Cobb County.

Police identified the victims as 43-year-old Sherrie Newton and 26-year-old Bryan Bunch of Marietta. Authorities didn't provide details on who they believe the aggressor was.

Sgt. Dana Pierce says authorities expect the county medical examiner's office to determine the cause and manner of death for each victim.
