Authorities in northeast Ohio are investigating the deaths of three people, including a child, in an apparent murder-suicide.

Police in Medina (meh-DY'-nuh) said Saturday that the victims are believed to be a married couple and their adopted child.

The identities of the husband, wife and child, as well as the date of their deaths, are under investigation.

The victims were sent to the Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Medical Examiner's office for autopsies.

The examiner's office referred questions about the case on Saturday to Medina police. No further details were immediately available.
