ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- A husband and wife were murdered Thursday at the same home where a dog was shot and killed in July, according to Rockford police.

Rockford Police Chief Dan O'Shea says Kelvin Langston is also the brother of Christina Langston Hill, one of the victims from the double-murder.
