LEAGUE CITY, Texas -- Police have released the names of a husband and wife found fatally shot in their Houston-area home in an apparent murder and suicide.

League City police say 35-year-old Waldemar Ruiz apparently killed his 33-year-old wife, Arjomarie, then turned the gun on himself.

Detective Walter Hammann says two children, ages 1 and 3, were found in another part of the home Friday night. The youngsters are in the care of an aunt who discovered the dead adults.

Hammann told the Houston Chronicle that Waldemar Ruiz had called his sister-in-law after he shot his wife to say "come get the kids."

Police are trying to determine a motive for the shootings.
