RICHMOND, VA—The two people found dead inside a Richmond home following a Saturday standoff with police died during a murder-suicide, the State Medical Examiners Office said.

Christina Mae Squire, 33, and Clarence Friend Taylor II, 38, were found dead inside a home in the 3900 block of Rusk Avenue following a police standoff that left two officers wounded Saturday.
