Investigators believe the 53-year-old husband killed his 39-year-old wife and then himself.
 
The Daily News says he drove a commuter van, while she worked at the pharmaceutical company Pfizer for 17 years..
 
Friends and relatives tell the newspaper the two had been married since 1999 and have an 8-year-old son, but their union had soured.
 
The wife's sister, Rachelle Thevenin, says Elsie Jones was trying to get a divorce.
