HENDRICKSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Authorities say three people have been found dead in a southwestern Indiana home in an apparent double murder and suicide.

Indiana State Police Sgt. Curt Durnil says the bodies of two women and a man were found Tuesday in the Green County home along State Route 43 about 1½ miles south of Hendricksville.

The victims were identified as 73-year-old Peggy J. Burks, her 71-year-old husband, Lawrence T. Burks, and 58-year-old Debra K. Floyd.

Durnil said the investigation is ongoing and a motive has not been established.

The (Bloomington) Herald-Times reports Greene Superior Court records show Peggy Burks filed a petition for divorce on Aug. 21, and her husband countered by filing against her the next day. A court hearing in the divorce was initially set for Wednesday, but was postponed to Sept. 27. Peggy Burks sent a letter to the judge objecting to the delay.
