EASTON, Conn. — The deaths of Jeanette and Jeffrey Navin were officially ruled homicides by the Connecticut Chief Medical Examiner's office on Thursday, according to the Connecticut Post .

Both suffered gunshot wounds, with the Post saying that "Jeanette Navin died of “gunshot wounds involving torso and extremities,” while Jeffrey Navin was killed by a “gunshot wound injury of trunk."

Jeanette and Jeffrey Navin of Easton were reported missing on Aug. 4. Jeffrey, 56, was president of J&J Refuse in Westport, where Kyle Navin was operations manager. Jeanette, 55, was a library paraprofessional at Weston Intermediate School.

Police have charged Kyle Navin of Bridgeport, the couples's 27-year-old son, with two counts of murder and one count of murder with special circumstances.

Held on $2.5 million bond, Kyle Navin also faces a federal charge of possession of a firearm by a drug addict in September.

Her body was wrapped in a tarp, and his was in contractor bags when the remains were dumped at the Weston home, police said.
