COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Authorities have released the identities of a man and woman found dead in a home in the Rosewood area of Columbia and they believe the deaths were the result of a murder-suicide.

Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said it's likely 60-year-old William Broll shot 54-year-old Kathleen P. Kee and then shot himself inside their home at 1112 South Ott Rd.

The bodies were discovered inside a home around 1:30 p.m. on Monday by a man checking on an employee of his family's business.

A handgun was found inside the house.

Investigators said there is no sign of forced entry or struggle.

The Richland County Sheriff's Department continues to investigate the incident.
