JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are investigating an apparent murder-suicide of an elderly couple in north Florida.

A man called authorities just before midnight Thursday to say he had killed his wife and was going outside to kill himself. When authorities arrived, the woman was dead inside the home and the man dead outside. The couple has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.
