The two people found dead in a murder-suicide in New Hampshire this week were a man who smothered a woman he lived with, then killed himself, prosecutors said Thursday.

The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office identified the two people Thursday after announcing the death investigation at a home on Dowaliby Court in Dover on Wednesday.

The man, 56-year-old Sean Navish, was found to have killed 58-year-old Christine Navish — they lived together, prosecutors said, without providing their relationship — and then himself by suffocation or smothering.

Police were called to the home Tuesday afternoon for a welfare check, authorities have previously said.

Officials initially gave a different name for Navish.
