In La Porte, authorities are investigating an apparent homicide. Police say a 60-year-old La Porte man has been preliminarily charged with murder after his 48-year-old wife was found dead in their home overnight. La Porte Police say at about 12:30 this morning their officers were dispatched to a home in the 800 block of “E” Street for a burglary in progress. Upon arrival, police say a man who lived there with his wife was apprehended coming out of the residence, and later taken to the La Porte County Jail, based on the department's preliminary investigation and evidence collected at the scene. Police say they discovered the body of the man's wife inside the residence, and the investigation is ongoing.  La Porte County Coroner John Sullivan says a forensic autopsy is being performed today in Mishawaka.
