December 19, 2012
LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Investigators say the death of a woman whose body was found in a burning West Texas duplex has been ruled a homicide.
Lubbock police Sgt. Jonathan Stewart said Wednesday that no one has been charged in the slaying discovered after a blood-covered man was located outside the home. Stewart says the man told authorities that he killed his wife and then set the duplex on fire.
Police say the man was taken to a Lubbock hospital for treatment of injuries mainly suffered from the fire.
Stewart on Wednesday declined to release the names of the couple or further details on the man's condition.
