A New Ringgold couple are the apparent victims of a murder-suicide. State police at Frackville are investigating the deaths of Randolph Wayne Arndt, II, 44, and Cindy L. Arndt, 50, of 416 N. Keim St. According to troopers about 6:10 p.m. Thursday a family member found the bodies of the two in a garage-barn area of the residence and immediately called 9-1-1. Troopers said it appears the incident is related to a domestic dispute between the couple and no other individuals were present in the home at the time of the incident. Autopsies will be performed by Dr. Richard Bindie, forensic pathologist, at the Schuylkill Medical Center South, Pottsville. Assisting troopers in the investigation are members of the county's coroners' and district attorney offices and the Troop L Major Team and Foresic Services out of the Reading barracks. Pictured is a state police van outside the rear area of the home where the bodies were found.
