TOWN OF BRISTOL (WKOW) -- Authorities say a man killed his wife and himself inside a town of Bristol home.

Dane County deputies found Kevin Herskind, 53, and Julie Herskind, 52, dead inside their home on County Highway N Tuesday afternoon. Officials had been sent to the home to check in after an employee didn't show up for work.

After an autopsy, authorities confirmed Julie died of a gunshot wound and Kevin died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. The couple's dog was also killed. Another dog and three cats were taken from the home by an animal control officer Tuesday afternoon.

Dane County Sheriff's Office says it's unclear at this point what led up to the violence, but the incident remains under investigation. Additional testing is also underway.
