The State Medical Examiner's office has ruled the deaths of a Dover-area couple a murder-suicide. The bodies of 67-year-old Morgan Gunther and his 58-year-old wife Valerie were found Wednesday afternoon in their home in the 200 block of Massey Drive. Police were called to the home after a neighbor went to check on the couple.

Police found no sign of forced entry and found a handgun at the scene. The medical examiner's office concluded that the woman's death was a homicide and her husband committed suicide.
