BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- A 71-year-old man and his 61-year-old wife are dead because of a domestic dispute, Binghamton police say.

Police have not said what the dispute was about, but have said the couple had no history of domestic violence. The two lived with their two adult sons in a first-floor apartment in Binghamton.
