"SUPERIOR, MT — State officials have released the names of the two Mineral County residents who died in an apparent murder/suicide earlier this week.
"Emma Jean Lane, 87, died when her husband John Lane, 85, shot her in their home near Superior off Southside Drive. The man then turned the gun on himself, dying from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
"Emma’s body was discovered Wednesday morning, when a neighbor arrived at the residence to check on the elderly couple.
"The neighbor entered the residence at the request of an out-state-relative, who was unable to reach the couple by phone.
"When the sheriff’s department arrived shortly after noon, they found John’s body."
