Police probe launched after man and woman's body found at Coventry property

AN INVESTIGATION has been launched after a man and a woman were found dead at an address in Coventry.

Officers were called by ambulance staff to Kenilworth Road just before 3pm yesterday afternoon after the body of a man in his 80s was found in the back garden.

The body of a 73-year-old woman were then found inside the address.

The couple have not yet been formally identified but are believed to be husband and wife.

Detectives are not currently looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.

Forensic post-mortems will take place in due course.

The house has been cordoned off while enquiries continue to establish the circumstances that led to their deaths.
