Taylor — Authorities have ruled the deaths of a man and a woman found shot to death Monday night a murder-suicide.

A relative went to the home at about 8:30 p.m. Monday in the 26800 block of Beverly Road when he became worried after not being able to make contact with the residents at the location.

He found his mother, 48-year-old Renee Lutton, and her boyfriend, James Walker, 59, dead inside.

Police Chief Mary Sclabassi said there was no evidence of a third party in the house Monday night.

The Wayne County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted medical examinations on the bodies Tuesday.
