WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Police in Wichita are investigating the deaths of husband and wife as a double homicide.

The Wichita Eagle reports the couple were found in a bedroom of their home around 11 a.m. Thursday with apparent stab wounds. Police Capt. Jose Salcido said officers had been summoned by a possible witness who couldn’t get the couple to wake up.

The couple’s names and other details were not immediately released, although they were described as being about 60 years old and longtime owners of the home. Police said there were no signs of a break-in.

Authorities were looking for the couple’s missing SUV, described as a metallic gray 2005 Kia Sorento.

Police said other people sometimes lived at the home, including young children.
