CHAPMAN, Maine (AP) _ Maine State Police are investigating the deaths of an elderly couple found in a northern Maine home.

Police say 81-year-old Marcus Sykora and his 77-year-old wife, Sheila Sykora, recently moved from Missouri to the town of Chapman near Presque Isle to stay with their daughter.

When officials responded to a 911 call at 11:20 a.m. Thursday, they found Marcus Sykora dead in the basement and his wife seriously injured. She later died at a Presque Isle hospital.

Police spokesman Steve McCausland said detectives don't suspect anyone outside of the home is involved in the deaths. He said more information would be released Friday after the medical examiner's office examines the bodies.

He wouldn't say who made the 911 call or who was at the home at the time police arrived.
