Authorities in Iroquois County say a Danforth man and his wife, both found shot to death early Thursday morning, are now identified as 35-year-old Christopher Johnson and 34-year-old Hillary Johnson.
County Coroner Bill Cheatum said the couple was found at their home on South Madison Street in the small Iroquois County community.
Cheatum said an autopsy completed (Thursday) confirms a murder-suicide. He said family members confirmed the couple was having marital problems.
Sheriff's Police reported no witnesses to the shootings. But neighbors reported the couple was arguing about 11 pm the night before. A Sheriff deputy and Gilman Police discovered the scene about 7 am after responding to a 'welfare check.' A car was found running outside the house overnight.
A handgun was found near the bodies.
