NOVI, Mich. Authorities in Oakland County have released the names of a Novi couple killed in an apparent murder-suicide.

Novi police found the bodies of a man and a woman Tuesday in a bathroom of the home northwest of Detroit. Officers were asked to go to the house after one of the victims failed to show for a scheduled appointment.

A domestic dispute appears to have preceded the slayings.

The Detroit Free Press reports that authorities say 59-year-old Gunar D. Christensen fatally shot 55-year-old Lisa A. Christensen, then shot himself.

Relatives tell police the couple were going through a divorce.
