A Citrus County couple was found shot to death in a home Wednesday in an apparent murder-suicide, deputies said.

Joseph and Deborah Davenport were recently estranged, the Citrus County Sheriff's Office said.

Deborah Davenport, 47, was leaving for work about 6:30 a.m. from her home in Inverness, when Joseph Davenport, 48 showed up, the sheriff's office said.

The couple argued, and Joseph forced Deborah into her 1997 blue Chevrolet van, and he drove to their former residence, 222 W. Inverness Blvd., the sheriff's office said.

Deputies forced their way into the home and found the couple deceased in a bedroom, the sheriff's office said. It appeared Joseph killed Deborah before turning the gun on himself, deputies said.

Autopsies will be done in Leesburg.
