PHOENIX -

Phoenix police have released the names of a couple found dead after a homicide-suicide in west Phoenix near 77th Avenue and McDowell Road.

Officer James Holmes says a man called 911 and told operators he killed his wife late Sunday night.

When police arrived, Holmes says a 33-year-old woman found dead with a gunshot wound. The victim was later identified as Angelina Collier.

Her three young children, ages 1, 3 and 12, were found asleep and unharmed.

Police later found 32-year-old Robert Collier dead inside his car near Indian School and 15th Avenue. Investigators believe he killed Angelina and drove about 10 miles before fatally shooting himself.

A friend of the couple's told FOX 10 they were going through a divorce, but they don't know why he would kill her.

The children remain in the custody of Arizona Child Protective Services.

The Associated Press contributed to this story.

    It appears the subway bedbug problem we've been reporting is getting worse. Commuters already have to contend with sweltering platforms, scurrying rats and packed train cars, and now there's another transit woe: fear of bedbugs.
