Associated Press - June 15, 2015 1:01 pm

Authorities have identified a couple who were found shot to death in their rural Kansas home last week.

The Miami County Sheriff’s office said Monday the victims were 62-year-old Michael G. Jerden and 58-year-old Sandy J. Jerden. Their bodies were found on June 8 in a home in rural Miami County.

Dental records were used to identify the couple.

The sheriff says last week they were killed by gunshots. Few other details have been released.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
