KIRKLAND, Wash. -- Kirkland police are investigating a possible murder-suicide involving a married couple in their sixties.
Officers were called to a home in the 10300 block 113th Court NE about 11 a.m. Sunday on a report of a deceased male.
Police say a man in his sixties was found in the garage with a self-inflicted wound. A woman, believed to be the man's wife, was found in the kitchen. She was murdered, according to police.
