ACWORTH, Ga. - Police in Acworth say a man and a woman found dead after a house fire in Acworth apparently died in a murder-suicide.

Acworth police Chief Mike Wilkie says a neighbor called 911 early Sunday after hearing loud noises. Wilkie says officers noticed the glow of fire coming from the house next door.

Wilkie says Cobb County firefighters found two bodies after entering the home. He says 64-year-old Dianne Hutcheson and 42-year-old Shawn Hutcheson both apparently died from gunshot wounds.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that court records show Dianne Hutcheson was in the process of divorcing Warren Hutcheson. Police say the investigation into the deaths continues.

Ok? So who is Warren? What's

Ok? So who is Warren? What's his relationship to Shawn? If I were the AC I might want to wait until there was more information available, this tells us very little.
