PHOENIX -- Authorities say a man and woman have been found dead in their west Phoenix home in an apparent murder-suicide.

Phoenix police say they called to the scene early Monday and found two bodies in a bedroom, each with an apparent gunshot wound.

Police say the man and woman died of their injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene.

The woman has been identified as 46-year-old Debra Fernandez. The name of the 52-year-old man hasn't been released yet.

Investigators say it appears the couple argued over financial issues late Sunday night and early Monday before shots were fired.

Police say occupants of the home included two adult children of the woman plus five small children under the age of 5.
