2 found dead in Missouri home; man arrested


CHAMOIS, Mo. (AP) — Two people were found dead in front of their central Missouri home over the weekend, and another man has been arrested and charged in the deaths, authorities there said.

The Osage County Sheriff’s Department said deputies were called around noon to a home north of Linn for a report of two deaths. Arriving officers found a Chamois couple — Leonard Gerloff, 59, and Pauline Gerloff, 56 — dead from gunshot wounds.

An investigation led officials to Warren Taylor, 62, of Chamois, who was arrested around 10 p.m. Saturday. Taylor was later charged with two counts of first-degree murder and two counts of armed criminal action. He was being held without bond.

No attorney for Taylor was listed in online court records as of early afternoon.
