Bodies Identified, Murder-Suicide Confirmed in Milford

MILFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Officials say a Milford woman was stabbed and choked to death and her husband committed suicide by hanging himself.

Police say the bodies of 51-year-old Catherine Fox and 50-year-old Kenneth Fox and were discovered Friday morning by a relative.

A spokesman for the chief state’s medical examiner’s office tells the New Haven Register ( ) that Catherine Fox died of multiple stab wounds and traumatic asphyxiation, while Kenneth Fox hanged himself.

Officer Jeffrey Nielsen, a police spokesman, said Monday that a family dog inside the home was injured during the attack but survived. He offered no other details on the attack, saying the investigation continues.

Court records indicate that police had been to the Foxes’ home before on domestic complaints.
