FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Police in suburban Dallas say a woman who was charged in the January death of her 10-year-old son appears to have killed her husband before committing suicide last month at their home.

Frisco police released the autopsy reports Wednesday showing Pallavi Dhawan died from drowning and toxic levels of a drug commonly found in cold and other medications.

The autopsy determined that her husband, Sumeet Dhawan, died of blunt force injuries to his head and toxic drug levels. His death is ruled a homicide.

Police spokesman Benito Valdez says no other suspects are being considered. The couple’s bodies were found Sept. 3.

Pallavi Dhawan was charged with murder in the death of her son, Arnav. She denied wrongdoing, though, and the medical examiner determined Arnav likely died of natural causes.
