    Police say her husband, 46-year-old Chester Andraka also died of a gunshot wound, which was determined to be suicide.

    Police in Parsippany were alerted to the situation by a phone call from Chester Andraka's employer, when he failed to show up for work.

    Responding to the scene on Monday, Police observed a body on a couch through a window, and forcibly entered the home, where they discovered the bodies.

    Investigators have not yet offered a motive.
