(Harrisburg) -- Authorities have identified three people who died in an apparent double murder-suicide in a Dauphin County apartment as a couple and their young son.

The bodies of 49-year-old Marvin Caddell, his 44-year-old estranged wife, Nightflower Staats, and their 7-year-old son were found Saturday in Middletown.

All three died of gunshot wounds, and police say the killings stemmed from a domestic dispute.

The 7-year-old's name has not been released.

Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick says the killings likely happened last Wednesday.

Police were called to the building after residents reported a foul odor.

A vigil is being planned for 7:00 p.m. tomorrow in front of the apartment building.
