A man is dead and a woman is injured after an assault sometime between Friday, Sept 13, and Sunday, Sept. 15, according to state police. 

Oliver Litzelman, 82, was found dead in his home on Route 414, Liberty Township, on Sunday morning by a family member. Edwina Litzelman, 81, was also at the home, and required immediate medical attention, according to police reports. She was transported from the scene by helicopter Sunday morning.

State police are continuing the investigation. A person of interest is being sought, and is described as a white middle-aged female operating a green sedan and is believed to be in the area sometime between Friday and Sunday.
