KATY, Texas (AP) — Authorities say they found a 1-year-old and a 4-year-old in a Houston-area home where a man and a woman were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide.

They say the children were found Monday morning in a bedroom and did not appear to have witnessed the violence. Fort Bend County sheriff's spokesman Bob Haenel says the woman was stabbed with a knife and her husband then hung himself. The identity of the couple was not released.

Haenel says the children have been turned over to family members.

He says the sheriff's office received a call shortly before 8 a.m. from the man saying he had killed his wife.

Katy is about 30 miles west of Houston.
