” A husband murdered his wife before killing himself in front of their three young children, police believe.
Officers were called to the family home on a newly-built housing estate in Oldbury, West Midlands on Saturday afternoon after a neighbour heard cries of children coming from the house.
A 26-year-old woman was found with fatal head injuries while the body of a 30-year-old man was also discovered in another room at the house on Pel Crescent.
The three children, who are all under the age of eight, are being cared for by family members.
West Midlands Police Detective Inspector Jim Munro confirmed that police are not looking for anyone in connection with the deaths.
He said: ‘This is a truly tragic incident. It’s understood the woman was violently attacked before the offender took his own life.
The timeline of exactly what happened is unclear but we believe the two people died during the morning.
‘There were three children, including a small baby, present at the address when officers made the discovery – they are being looked after by loved ones and will receive specialist support.’
Post-mortem examinations will take place later on Monday, police”
