KATY (March 18, 2013)—Fort Bend County Deputies found a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old Monday in a Houston-area home where a man and a woman died in what evidently was a murder-suicide, authorities said.
The children didn’t appear to have witnessed the deaths, authorities said.
Fort Bend County sheriff's spokesman Bob Haenel said the woman was stabbed to death with a knife.
Her husband called the sheriff’s office shortly before 8 a.m. to report that he had killed his wife.
He then hanged himself.
Their names weren’t immediately released.
Haenel said the children were turned over to family members.
