New Castle County police say they are investigating the death of a Milltown couple as an apparent murder-suicide. Officers went to check on the couple at their home in the 2700 block of Charles Place around 6 p.m. Wednesday after a relative could not reach them.

Spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro says officers found a 55-year-old woman dead and a 55-year-old man severely injured in another room. Navarro says the man was able to speak, but did not say what the man said.

The man was taken to Christiana Hospital, where he died.

Police are not releasing their names, pending notification of family.
