A man tells investigators he woke up in the middle of the night to find his wife lying dead near the front door. It happened at a home on Henry near Aldine Mail Road in north Harris County. The victim's husband says he was in bed when he thought he heard someone at the door, and that's when he found his wife lying unconscious.

"We know that they were involved in some kind of verbal confrontation earlier this evening," said Dennis Field with the Harris County Sheriff's Office. "He went to bed and later finds her on the floor unresponsive."

Investigators say they are waiting on an autopsy before releasing her cause of death. No suspects are in custody at this time.
