— The bodies of a Durham couple were found Monday in their Boylan Road home in Durham County, according to a search warrant.

Deputies responded after a neighbor went to check on the couple and found them dead inside the home.

Investigators said Anna Wright, 76, and her husband Charles Wright, 78, had been shot to death.

Authorities said the Wrights both had serious medical conditions, and it appeared that Charles Wright shot his wife before killing himself.
