MOUNTAIN HOME, AR (KAIT) - Multiple agencies in Baxter County are continuing to investigate a murder-suicide.

According to a release from the Baxter County Sheriff's Dept., it happened around 12:20 a.m. Saturday.

The release states a man called 911 after discovering his mother and stepfather dead at a home on Kierra Place in Mountain Home.

Once multiple law enforcement agencies arrived, they located 54-year-old Kenneth Bradley Farley and 57-year-old Jane Marie Farley in the home.

Investigators located a Ruger 9 mm pistol near Kenneth's body, leading investigators to believe Kenneth shot Jane once in the lower back and again in the chest before shooting himself in the throat.
