PHOENIX -- Authorities have released the names of a couple found dead after a homicide-suicide in west Phoenix.

Phoenix police say 33-year-old Angelina Collier was found fatally shot in an apartment. Her three young children were found asleep and unharmed in the same apartment.

Police received a 911 call at about 11:30 p.m. Sunday from a man who said he killed his wife and she was in an apartment.

Investigators believe 32-year-old Robert Collier killed the woman and drove about 10 miles before fatally shooting himself.

Police say the children- ages 1, 3 and 12- now are in the custody of the Arizona Child Protective Services.

It's not immediately clear if Robert Collier was the biological father of any of three children.
