Nigerian Professor, Woman Found Dead In US

A United States-based Nigerian professor, Marinus Iwuchukwu, and a woman identified as Charce Dunn have been found dead in Pittsburg Pennsylvania.

They were found dead along Thorncrest Drive, Wilkins Township, Pittsburg on Tuesday after an alleged “domestic disturbance” around 10 am.

The Allegheny County Police said they received a call to check on the well-being of a couple inside their home.

According to the police, a third party was unable to reach the male resident and learned that the man had been stabbed. A woman remained inside the residence with a firearm.

The SWAT team made entry into the home and found a 59-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman dead, Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 reports.

Both appeared to have sustained lacerations, and the woman sustained an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.

The police said the incident is being investigated as a suspected murder-suicide.
