Police in Fairfax County say a husband killed his wife before killing himself at their Fairfax County home in an apparent murder-suicide the night before Thanksgiving.

Officers say they responded to an apartment on the 7300 block of Parkwood Court in the Falls Church area around 10:48 p.m. Wednesday. They say a relative discovered the bodies of 51-year-old Judith Garcia Gonzales de Gudiel, and her husband, 60-year-old Ever Gudiel dead inside.

Police believe Ever Gudiel attacked his wife, causing trauma to her upper body before hanging himself.

Officers did not find any signs of forced entry and say there does not seem to be any threat to the public at this time. The investigation is continuing.
