The bodies of Dexter Dion Green, 42, and Sonia R. Green, 41, were found in the master bedroom at 15 Bouriese Circle.
Officers had been called to the address just before 3:30 on a residential alarm activation but left when no one answered their repeated knocks at the door and the home was found to be secure.
Officers were dispatched to the same home about two hours later when the Green's daughter called to report someone had been shot inside the home.
According to the incident report there were other children inside the home who went to a neighbor's house when they realized what had happened.
Maumelle Police say Green had been shot once in the head and his wife had been shot more than once. A semi-automatic handgun was found lying next to him and shell casings were scattered over the floor, according to the incident report.
That home is located in the Country Club of Arkansas subdivision.
