LIVINGSTON — Livingston Parish Sheriff’s detectives are investigating a possible murder-suicide near Holden, an official said Wednesday.

It appeared that a husband shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself, said Jason Ard, chief Criminal Deputy for the Livingston Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The names of the couple were not released because deputies were still contacting family members, Ard said.

The couple was found this morning around 9 a.m. in their home on Tickfaw Acres Road near Holden, Ard said.
