New Castle County police have identified the married couple killed during a double homicide in Edgemoor early Sunday morning.

Police say emergency personnel responded to the Paladin Club Condominiums just before 1:30 a.m. for a report of shots fired.

Police say when officers arrived at the apartment complex they found Joseph and Olga Connell, both 39 years old, a married couple who lived in the area.

Olga Connell was taken to Wilmington Hospital, where she later died. Jospeh Connell died at the scene.

Police say a preliminary investigation shows that someone in the area heard an unknown man yelling just prior to the shots fired.

No suspect information, and investigators have no clear motive for the shooting.

If anyone has information on this incident contact police or crime stoppers.
