COLONIE, N.Y. (AP) — An 82-year-old upstate New York woman and a 77-year-old man have been found dead inside a suburban Albany home.
Fire officials entered the home in Colonie late Thursday morning and found the man dead in a bed and the woman just outside the bedroom door. They are identified as John Lamena and Palma Nero.
Police say they may have died of carbon monoxide poisoning. A car was running in an enclosed garage and more than 10 times the lethal level of the gas was found inside the home, which is on a quiet cul-de-sac.
Authorities were contacted by co-workers of the woman when she didn't show up for work.
Foul play is not suspected and police say there are no apparent wounds.
Autopsies are scheduled for Friday.
