WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - Authorities in Palm Beach County say they are investigating an apparent murder-suicide after a teenager found her parents fatally shot in their bathroom.

The sheriff's office says Michael Phillips had in the past threatened Josefina Boza, and that the pair recently reconciled after separating for more than a year.

Their bodies were discovered Saturday around 11:15 p.m.

The 16-year-old girl, who was not identified, is in the custody of her maternal uncle.
