"HOUSTON, TX — A man and his wife were found dead in an apartment in northeast Harris County Sunday afternoon after what officials said was an apparent murder-suicide.
"The couple was discovered about 3:30 p.m. in a unit at The Club at Stablechase apartments at 13504 Schroeder near Texas 249, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.
"Deputies say the woman’s father called authorities after he had not heard from his daughter since the previous Friday when the couple had dropped off their infant son at the home of the woman’s parents. When deputies went to the apartment for a welfare check, the door was bolted from the inside. Deputies gained entry and found the pair dead.
"Initial reports indicate no note was found in the apartment, but deputies said it appears the pair died in a murder-suicide. The couple was in the process of divorcing, deputies added.
"Deputies are awaiting autopsy results on the woman to determine her cause of death. No obvious signs of how she died were visible on her body, deputies said."
