"After attempts to contact the caller via phone and at the residence were unsuccessful, a deputy entered the trailer.
"The deputy found Ronald Glenn Cooper, 71, and Laraine Jean Cooper, 72, both dead on a bedroom floor from gunshot wounds to the head.
"A black, semi-automatic 9mm pistol was found on Ronald Cooper's chest.
