MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) — The Connecticut governor's office says two people found dead inside a snow-covered car parked in a driveway were killed by carbon monoxide poisoning.

The bodies of a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman were found Sunday morning. Police tell Meriden's Record-Journal newspaper there were paths shoveled alongside the vehicle but the rest of it was covered with snow and the windows were rolled up.

The two deaths bring the number of weekend snowstorm-related deaths in the state to seven.

State police on Monday released the name of a 79-year-old Prospect woman killed by a hit-and-run driver while she was using her snow-blower Friday night. Troopers are still seeking the driver of the car that hit Mary McCormack.
