CHALMETTE, La. (AP) - St. Bernard Parish authorities are investigating an apparent murder-suicide.

Sheriff James Pohlmann told New Orleans media it happened early Monday morning when a woman is believed to have shot her husband then herself. Two children were in the house at the time of the shooting but they were not hurt.

Pohlmann said family members told investigators the couple had been married about two years.

Family members said the two had a tumultuous, on-again-off-again relationship.

The man was identified as 37-year-old Demond Mullens; the woman was 36-year-old Tamara Lee.
