Warren County authorities have identified the husband and wife killed in an apparent murder suicide.
Deputy Coroner Kelda Bailess said 35-year-old Surrenda Davis Vaughn and 46-year-old Edward Vaughn were found shot Saturday night. Bailess said the couple's teen son found their bodies.
Authorities say both were found in the bed at their home, located at 211 Lakeside Drive in Vicksburg.
"We're investigating it as a murder suicide," Bailess said.
"We've sent both bodies to the (state) crime lab for autopsies. We hope to have the preliminary report in a day or so, depending on how busy they are," Bailess added.
Bailess said Davis Vaughn was a mother of three children. Saturday, residents at the scene of the crime, said Davis Vaughn had been employed with the Vicksburg Warren County School System.
Sheriff Martin Pace said more information will be released as it becomes available.
