A middle-aged woman and man were found dead in a house outside Gnesta in eastern Sweden at 8pm on Wednesday evening. Police suspect that woman may have been murdered by the man, who then took his own life.

Police have referred to the incident as a probable family tragedy and have chosen not to release further details of the circumstances surrounding the two deaths out of consideration for the next of kin.

Police were also reluctant to reveal the nature of their relationship.

"One person" is suspected of murder and police have confirmed that they are not looking for any further suspects.
