Police in Winona are investigating a possible homicide after a 75-year-old woman was found dead in her home.

Police were called to a house on the 1500 block of West King Street at 3.30 p.m. to find the woman dead in the living room of the property, as well as an 84-year-old man who had a severe head injury, WKBT reports.
