TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Investigators say the case of a man and his girlfriend found dead inside a Tucson home has been ruled a murder-suicide.

Pima County Sheriff's deputies responded Monday afternoon to reports of a domestic problem in the 7300 block of North Camino de la Tierra and found the two bodies. Authorities identified them as 41-year-old Ceciela Lopez and 37-year-old David Rosas Munguia.

Investigators said Wednesday that evidence shows Lopez was stabbed multiple times and was a homicide victim while Munguia died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. They say the couple had an argument before Munguia called a family member to come over to the home and that person discovered the bodies.
