QUAKERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Friends and neighbors are saddened by the deaths of four family members who are suspected of falling victim to carbon monoxide fumes after the husband's apparent suicide.

Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler said Tuesday that a state police investigation indicates that Gary Reitnauer went into a garage on the family's property in Milford Township in rural Bucks County, about 45 miles northwest of Philadelphia, on Monday and started the car following an argument with his wife.

Heckler says it is believed the wife and the couple's two daughters tried to rescue him but were overcome by the deadly fumes.

A nephew, Rob Zern, says "it's a tragedy all around."
