Deputies responded to the address, 112 Unity Drive, off Alonzo Road, north of Newton Grove, and found a man and a woman dead. Unconfirmed reports indicate the victims had been shot.
Sheriff Steve Bizzell said a 2 year-old child was found in the home. The toddler was not harmed and was placed with family members.
