Fairfield, Ohio (AP) -- A coroner says the shooting of a couple found dead inside a sport utility vehicle parked at an Ohio day care center was a homicide-suicide.

Coroner Richard Burkhardt in southwest Ohio's Butler County said Tuesday that the wrists and ankles of 46-year-old Evelyn Restituyo had been bound with white plastic ties and her body was found in the back seat.

Fairfield police Lt. Kevin Haddix says police believe 47-year-old Francisco Restituyo confronted the woman outside her the outlet store where she worked on Monday and shot her in the thigh.

Haddix says the man then drove her about six miles to the Jelly Bean Junction Day Care Center, where he fatally shot her and then himself.

None of the children at the day care center was injured.

Authorities find no evidence that the couple was connected to the center.
