CHICAGO, Ill. - Chicago police are now classifying the shooting deaths of a Wisconsin couple at a downtown hotel Friday as murder-suicide.

Police initially thought 56 year old James Wright of Milwaukee and 46 year old Kim Wright of Oconomowoc took their own lives, but an autopsy Saturday concluded, that wasn't possible.

It is now believed that Kim Wright shot her companion, and then herself at the Sheraton Hotel on Columbus Drive.

The two were found in their hotel room on the 18th floor Saturday with two guns next to the bed.
