(AP) A coroner has ruled that an eastern Pennsylvania family of four died of carbon monoxide poisoning after the husband went to the garage after an argument with his wife and started the car.


Bucks County Dr. Joseph Campbell ruled the death of Gary Reitnauer in Milford Township a suicide. Officials believe Reitnauer's wife and two daughters, ages 10 and 16, tried to rescue him Monday night and were overcome by the fumes. Campbell has ruled their deaths as accidental.


The coroner said Thursday that toxicology testing showed extremely high levels of carbon monoxide in the bodies of all four victims.


Campbell calls Reitnauer's suicide a "selfish act" that wound up "devastating the entire family."


Milford Township is about 45 miles northwest of Philadelphia.
