WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH) — Police in Waterbury have identified the married couple who were found dead in their home Thursday morning.

Police received a call around 11:30 a.m Thursday from a business saying an employee, 48-year-old LaRhonda Jones, did not show up for work.

They couldn’t reach her, so they called her sister who then called police for a welfare check.

Officers went to the condo in the 400 block of Perkins Avenue and found Jones and her husband, 54-year-old Eric Jones, a retired New Haven police officer, dead inside.
