A man and woman were found dead Saturday in an apparent carbon monoxide poisoning at a home in eastern Colorado Springs.

Police were dispatched to a home in the 1400 block of North Murray Boulevard around 8:45 a.m. after a relative reported that the couple reported had not been in touch since Wednesday, police said.

Carbon monoxide may have contributed to their death, police said, though the El Paso County Coroner's office has not yet released a cause.

The 900-square-foot home is owned by 82-year-old Charles and Ruth Love, 61, according to the El Paso County assessor's records. The couple could not be reached by phone.
