The identities of the man and woman found dead after a murder-suicide in Halethorpe Thursday have been released.

The incident happened in the 4400 block of Fenor Road. After arriving on the scene Thursday morning and recovering Burris’ body, police tried to get Brilliantes to come out of the home, but he ultimately shot himself that afternoon.
