GREER, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man and a wife found dead in the backyard of a Greer home each committed suicide.

Greenville County Deputy Coroner Kent Dill said the husband shot himself Thursday, then his wife found his body and used the gun to kill herself.

Police Lt. Jimmy Holcombe says a neighbor called 911 after seeing the bodies.

Dill says the couple had been dead for several hours before they were found.

Authorities say the couple had lived in their home for more than 30 years.
