2 Bourbon County deaths investigated

Kentucky State Police said Monday that it was too early to say whether a Bourbon County couple, whose bodies were found Sunday, were killed in a murder-suicide.

The bodies of Paul L. Barbee, 42, and Maryanne Barbee, 39, of North Middletown, were found about 2:40 p.m. Sunday in their home, state police said. Police said gunshot wounds might have caused their deaths.

There were no signs of forced entry, police said.

State police Sgt. Jeremy Murrell said an autopsy was being performed Monday at the State Medical Examiner's Office in Frankfort. Murrell said he expected police to release more details in a few days.
