      Details emerge in Ironwood murder-suicide

      The Ironwood Public Safety Department has released an update on the murder suicide reported on Monday.

      Officials say that officers responded to a home at 88 Burt Street in Ironwood to find 83-year-old David Rudolf Mukavitz and his wife 77-year-old Constance Helen Mukavitz dead from apparent gunshot wounds.

      The report states that, while some information is still pending, it appears David Mukavitz shot and killed Constance Mukavitz before killing himself. They both appeared to be in ill health, which may have been a contributing factor in the incident.

      Officers will be continuing the investigation and will send reports to the Gogebic County Prosecutor when they are complete for review.
