MAULDIN, S.C. (WSPA) – Officials have identified the two people who were killed in a Mauldin home.

The two were found Monday evening during a welfare check at a home on Ashby Park Lane.

The Greenville County Coroner’s Office said the couple, a husband and wife, had been dead for at least 24 hours.

“Both victims died extremely violent deaths,” said Greenville County Senior Deputy Coroner Mike Ellis.

The coroner’s office identified the first victim Thursday as 69-year-old Janice L. Casey and the second victim as 69-year-old Patrick Casey.

According to the coroner’s office, both victims were stabbed to death.

“When we got there and did a preliminary walk through we saw significant trauma that was unexplainable at the time,” Ellis said during an interview on Tuesday. “At that time our office started conducting a suspicious death investigation.”

The Mauldin Police Department is investigating.
