Deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in Montgomery County.The victims are a husband and wife who had recently separated and were going through a divorce. Sharon Robbins, 37, had been living at her mother's house, along with her children.

Investigators say Sharon left her mother's house to go talk to her husband, Richard Robbins, 39, at a home on Stone Fox near Fox Pitt.

Sharon's mother got worried when she didn't return for quite some time. She took the couple's 11-year-old son to check on the couple, and that's when the son found his mother dead inside the home. The boy ran out, and neighbors called 911.

Sharon was found in the living room of the home and Richard was discovered upstairs. Both suffered fatal gunshot wounds to the head. Investigators believe Richard killed his wife and then took his own life. The investigation is continuing.
