A Texas judge was killed by her husband in an apparent murder-suicide, the Dallas Morning News reported Monday.
Rowlett Juvenile Court Judge Belinda Loveland, 59, was found dead Sunday evening in her home. The body of her attorney husband Richard, 59, was also found.
The couple’s son called 911 after receiving a text message from his father that read “I don’t know how to tell you this, but I think I just killed your mother,” according to the paper.
Police arrived at the couple’s Rowlett, Tex., home and were unable to contact anyone inside.
“It appears that Richard Loveland shot his wife and then turned the gun on himself," the paper quoted the Rowlett Police Department as saying.
No motive for the crime has been given.
