In state news; it was apparently a tragic circumstance for a Salem couple. The State Medical Examiners Office says a Salem couple found dead in their backyard hot tub Monday morning apparently overheated and drowned.  Terry Kent, 56, and Melinda Sweeten, 57 were found by a relative who was planning to drop off a child in their care for the day. Dr. Larry Lewman says "They probably passed out and drowned after the heat became too much." People close to the couple say Kent and Sweeten were settling into retired life and appeared to have put a string of financial and legal troubles behind them.
