The Tarrant County Medical Examiner has ruled the deaths of a Mineral Wells couple found dead last month in a Weatherford motel room as the result of a homicide, followed by a suicide.

The bodies of Catherine A Walker, 64, and Kenneth Ray Walker, 61, both of Mineral Wells, were discovered Oct. 21 in a Motel 6 room in the 100 block of Alford Drive in Weatherford after police were called to investigate a welfare concern.

Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

The medical examiner has ruled Kenneth Walker's death as a homicide caused by a gunshot wound to the head. Catherine Walker's death was deemed a suicide, also caused by a gunshot wound to the head.

Weatherford police at the time said the deaths were not a double homicide.
