    Authorities say police are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after two people were found dead in their Brockton, Massachusetts, apartment.

    A spokeswoman for Plymouth District Attorney Timothy Cruz says that 61-year-old Antonio Cordoso and 53-year-old Rosa Goncalves were found dead in their apartment on Wednesday.

    The Plymouth County DA's Office says the two were in a long-standing relationship and had children separately, but not together.

    Officials say the couple's landlord found them while performing a well-being check around 6 p.m. at the request of Cordoso's brother.

    Spokeswoman Beth Stone says Goncalves' body was found in the bedroom. She says Cordoso was found in the kitchen, where he hanged himself.

    An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday to determine the exact cause of death.
