Murder-Suicide Suspected After Texas Couple Found Dead In Their Home

NEW BRAUNFELS (April 10, 2012)--New Braunfels police say a couple found shot to death in their bedroom were victims of what may be a murder-suicide.

The bodies of Elizabeth Trevino, 37, and her husband Augustine Garcia, 39, were found Monday morning locked in the bedroom of their mobile home.

Police Capt. John McDonald says both were shot in the head.

A firearm was found in the room.

Relatives and officials say the couple's 15-year-old daughter found the bodies when she and her sisters, ages 18 and 13, returned home from spending the night with their grandparents.

Trevino's cousin, Mary Villanueva, told the San Antonio Express-News the couple had separated recently.

It remains unclear who may have shot whom.

Autopsies are scheduled later this week.
