A Northern Westchester couple died of apparent carbon monoxide poisoning after unintentionally leaving their car running at their home, state police said.

The victims -- Cornelius Dennis, 86, and Joan Dennis, 85, of Skytop Drive in Croton-on-Hudson -- were discovered on Saturday, May 26.

Initial investigation suggests the two returned home, and inadvertently left the vehicle running in the garage, according to state police. A buildup of carbon monoxide is thought to have led to their deaths on Wednesday, May 23, state police said.

The victims were discovered after a neighbor noticed three days of newspapers outside the residence.
