HOUSTON -

Police are investigating after a woman was found shot to death in her southwest Houston home.

It happened overnight Sunday at the victim's home on the 500 block of Trafalgar Drive near South Post Oak Road.

Police say the 44-year-old woman lived with a man in his early 60s, who is handicapped and in a wheelchair.
