July 21, 2019

WATERBORO, Maine (AP) — Maine State Police detectives are investigating the deaths of a couple from Waterboro as a murder-suicide.

Police says the bodies of Christal and Christopher Denis, who were both 45, were found in their home on New Dam Road just before 8 p.m. Saturday by York County deputies who had been called to the house by relatives of the couple.

State Police spokesman Steve McCausland says Christopher Denis shot his wife with a shotgun and then turned the gun on himself.

The bodies were found in the living room of the house.

Autopsies will be conducted on the bodies Sunday by the experts from the office of the Maine Medical Examiner.
