Washington County Sheriff Ed Graybeal said Friday that marital problems are believed to be the cause of an alleged murder-suicide in Jonesborough.

Washington County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to 113 Smith Lane, a home in the Leesburg area in the town’s west end, for a welfare check called in by a neighbor.

According to Graybeal, when deputies arrived they noticed a strong odor and insects, giving them reason to enter the residence, where they located two bodies — a man and a woman — near the back door.
