Liberal, Kansas - The bodies of two people found dead in Liberal are ruled a murder-suicide.

Officials with the Liberal Coroners Office say Jose Angel Rodriguez smothered his 39 year old wife with a pillow Saturday night.  They say he then used a circular saw to cut the arteries on his legs, which caused him to bleed to death.

The bodies were discovered by police on Wednesday. Co-workers became suspicious when the couple missed several days of work.
