LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County police are identifying a couple found dead at their Laurel apartment.

Police say James Vell Ferguson, 42, and Tina Towler, 45, were found dead in the apartment on Muirkirk Road on Thursday morning, but Towler’s 25-year-old daughter was unharmed.

A nurse who cares for the daughter, who is disabled, found the victims when she arrived for a scheduled visit. The daughter was taken to a local hospital for observation.

Police say the two victims suffered trauma to the upper body and their deaths are being investigated as homicides.

Neighbors reported hearing loud voices in the home about 5 a.m. and detectives are working to find a suspect and a motive.
