ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) -

The two people found dead Monday in a St. Martin Motel 6 have been identified as a couple from Courtland, Mississippi. That's in Panola County.

Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell said Varnasia Rena Frost, 28, and Myron Dewan Hall, 39, were found Monday afternoon by the motel's housekeeping staff.

Investigators said both died from gunshot wounds, and Hall's injury appeared to be self-inflicted. The deaths remain under investigation, but officials are calling it a murder-suicide.

The exact time of their deaths is still not clear. The couple checked into the motel Saturday.
