The Kentucky State Police say that two people found dead at a Livingston County home Tuesday afternoon died of natural causes.

Autopsies were performed Wednesday on 57-year-old Terry Burnette and 56-year-old Deborah Burnette, both of Burna, at the state medical examiner's office in Louisville. Police say preliminary results from those autopsies indicate that Deborah Burnette died from a brain aneurysm, and Terry Burnette died from a weak heart, due to medical issues.

State police said foul play is not suspected in their deaths.  

The Burnettes were found dead at their home on US Highway 60 East in Burna shortly after 4:00 pm Tuesday. Terry Burnette was found in the front yard, and Deborah Burnette was found in her bedroom.
