Plum police are investigating a carbon monoxide poisoning that left a woman dead and her husband hospitalized Wednesday afternoon.

Chief Frank Monaco said Mary Harris, 66, and Gary Harris, 67, were found unresponsive in their home in the 700 block of New Texas Road at about 2 p.m. Wednesday.

Monaco said police were called when a daughter went to the home after not being able to reach the couple by telephone. Monaco said a car with no gas in it was discovered in the garage, and the garage door was closed.

Mary Harris was pronounced dead, according to the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office. She died from carbon monoxide poisoning, officials said. The death has been ruled accidental.

Gary Harris was transported to Allegheny General Hospital where he was listed in good condition Thursday, a spokeswoman said.
