A husband and wife were found dead on Wednesday morning inside their home in Bordentown Township, N.J.

Police are calling it an apparent murder-suicide.

John Havens III, 30, and Kerry Havens, 29, were found inside their home at 41 Tantum Court around 7:00 a.m.

The bodies were found by Kerry Havens' parents, police said, who had gone to the house to watch their two children.

Those children, a three-year-old girl and a one-year-old boy, were not harmed.

Police say their preliminary investigation revealed that the couple had an argument, resulting in the murder-suicide.

It is not clear who was responsible.

Details of the deaths are being withheld pending autopsies.

Police also said there is no reason to believe a third party was involved in the deaths.
