(Salt Lake City-AP) -- A husband and wife are dead in an apparent murder-suicide that was discovered in Salt Lake City yesterday.

Police were not yet releasing the names of the man and woman, who were in their early 70s.

The couple was discovered when their daughter stopped by their high-rise apartment to help out with some errands. She found the woman dead on the floor -- apparently strangled -- and the man hanging from a noose in the bathroom.

Police aren't sure what led to the violence.
