THE WOODLANDS, Texas (AP) - Authorities say a woman was shot multiple times by her husband before he turned the gun on himself in their home in The Woodlands.

The Houston Chronicle (https://bit.ly/1Fk7Z34 ) reports 44-year-old Rachel Mt. Joy and 44-year-old Billy Joe Wischnewsky died Wednesday night. Montgomery County law enforcement responded to a report of a shooting at the residence, and authorities say the two were found dead in the same room in the front of the house.

According to Montgomery County sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Brady Fitzgerald, the couple had a verbal disagreement and Mt. Joy called a relative to pick up their young child.

Fitzgerald said after the child was taken from the home, another family member arrived and found the couple dead.

Authorities say they do not know what the couple’s argument was about.
