The Bell County Sheriff's Office is investigating a murder-suicide in a home on Charping Lane in Belton.

When they arrived, they found the bodies Brian Lee Hand, 38, and Ana Christina Hernandez, 47 - both of whom had gunshot wounds. Neighbors said the two lived in the home.

The two were pronounced dead at the scene by Justice of the Peace David Barfield, who ordered their bodies undergo autopsy.
