    Sheriff's deputies are investigating an apparent murder-suicide in Denton County.

    A man and woman were found dead inside a home on Lakeview Drive in Providence Village on Monday.

    A relative called police Monday when the woman did not show up for an appointment.

    Investigators found both bodies in the master bedroom. Police said the man shot his girlfriend and then himself.

    Police had not released the names of the individuals as of late Monday night.

    It was the second time in as many days that Denton County sheriff's deputies were called to the home. Deputies went to the home Saturday for a domestic dispute between the couple.

    Neighbors said the woman was trying to move out over the weekend but her boyfriend was trying to stop her.

    The woman has a 10-year-old son who is in the custody of relatives.
