Five family members, including three kids, were found dead in an Ohio home Thursday evening in what police are calling a "domestic dispute that turned deadly," according to a news release.

The incident is being investigated as a quadruple murder-suicide, police said.

The Uniontown Police Department responded to 13305 Carnation Avenue around 7:31 p.m. to conduct a wellbeing check at the request of a coworker of one of the family members.

Officers found Jason Dunham, 46, Melissa Dunham, 42, and their children, 15-year-old Renee, 12-year-old Amber and 9-year-old Evan dead at the Stark County home. Jason and Melissa were married at the time of the incident, according to police.

Details of what happened are still under investigation, police said.
