Deaths of couple in Bullitt County home ruled murder-suicide

BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - Investigators in Bullitt County say they have ruled the deaths of a couple found dead in their home a murder-suicide.

Police say a family member found the husband and wife dead Monday afternoon in a bedroom of their Bullitt County home.

The coroner has identified the couple as Avery Blevens, 63, and Marion Blevens, 65.

Sheriff's deputies say they had never been called to the home before the incident.

Police believe Avery shot his wife while she was in bed, then took his own life.
