GONZALES, La. (AP) - Ascension Parish Sheriff Jeff Wiley says a 74-year-old man and a 50-year-old man were killed in an apparent home invasion in Gonzales, and a 72-year-old woman was fighting for her life.
WBRZ-TV and WAFB-TV report that deputies were sent to the house late Saturday because relatives had been unable to reach the occupants by phone.
Wiley says nobody answered the door, so deputies broke in. He says they found 72-year-old Shirley Marchand still alive, and the bodies of 74-year-old Robert Irwin Marchand and 50-year-old Douglas Dooley.
Investigators were still at the house on Sunday.
Shirley Marchand was in a hospital.
