LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- Gwinnett County police say a woman has been killed and a man has been hospitalized in critical condition in what they say was a slaying and suicide attempt in a home near Lawrenceville.

Authorities found the elderly couple after a welfare check Monday afternoon.

Cpl. Ed Ritter said someone called police after 62-year-old Eva Blatt and 70-year-old Alex Blatt did not appear for a meeting.

Police did not immediately say how Eva Blatt died. Alex Blatt is being treated for his injuries at Gwinnett Medical Center.
