A Creighton University professor who grew up in Monroeville and his wife were slain this week at their home in Nebraska, police in Omaha said.

No arrests have been made in the killings of Dr. Roger A. Brumback, 65, and his wife, Mary, whose bodies were found Tuesday, authorities said. Police won't say how the couple were killed but said the case was being investigated as a double homicide.

Brumback, who was planning to retire in a few weeks and move to West Virginia, was a 1965 graduate of Gateway High School. He was selected as 2001 Alumni Fellow of the Pennsylvania State University School of Medicine.

He was a noted researcher in Alzheimer's disease and served as chairman of the Pathology Department of the Creighton University School of Medicine from 2001 to 2010.

He worked as a staff neurologist in 1977-78 at UPMC Presbyterian and Children's Hospital. He also served as a clinical instructor in neurology and pediatrics during that time at the University of Pittsburgh.
