The spouses were around 55 years old and Milovan was a village council representative, Serbia’s Ministry for Kosovo has stated.
Kosovo police regional spokesman Agim Gashi says that the couple was shot with a 7.62 caliber weapon.
According to him, the police still have no suspects and nobody has been arrested yet.
Uroševac Municipality Coordinator Milan Janjić said earlier that it is still unknown how Milovan and Ljiljana Jevtić died.
Kosovo Deputy Interior Minister Saša Rašić told Tanjug earlier on Saturday that the Kosovo police had launched the investigation and that special investigative units were working on the case, adding that circumstances surrounding the murder were still unknown.
Janjić said that Ljiljana had arrived to Talinovac several days ago and that the other village residents had not heard anything since their house was located in the outskirts of the village.
A neighbor, who came for a visit, found the bodies.
“EULEX and Kosovo police sealed off the house,” Janjić told KiM Radio.
Village council representative Branislav Milenković said he had last seen the Jevtić’s on Friday. He asked the police to evacuate five or six Serbian families from the village, but a policeman said that they should not worry about their safety.
Janjić said that Milovan and Ljiljana Jevtić returned to Kosovo in 2004.
