Investigators say a Dallas-area woman and her son have died in an apparent murder-suicide in the home they shared.

Flower Mound police say the 31-year-old son allegedly stabbed his 57-year-old mother, then killed himself.

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office on Tuesday identified the pair as Deborah Lynn Wilner and Eric Michael Wilner. Both were dead at the scene Monday afternoon.

Flower Mound police say the bodies were found by another person in the home - the woman's husband and the man's father - who apparently was asleep during the stabbings.

Authorities are seeking a motive for the deaths.
