A domestic dispute between a lesbian couple ended in a murder suicide on New Year's Day.
Ana Flores, 24, called police to the Houston home she shared with 29-year-old fiancee Belinda Espinoza on Tuesday around 6pm to report an argument.
When police arrived both women were dead.
Espinoza shot Flores in the chest before turning the gun on herself.

Murder suicide: Family of Belinda Espinoza said she called them earlier that day threatening suicide
According to Facebook: The couple were engaged and had been in a relationship for more than three years which was heavily documented on both their Facebook pages
It is not known what caused the argument but Espinoza uploaded a picture to her Facebook account of the couple kissing right before the shooting.
According to Facebook, the couple were engaged and had been in a relationship for more than three years which was heavily documented on both their Facebook pages.
Dozens of pictures of the couple at home, eating out in restaurants, at the beach and with family were posted on their accounts.
On Espinoza's Facebook page on New Year's Eve, nothing seemed to have been amiss as she posted that she was with Ana, who calls herself Nelly, and said she was getting ready for the celebration.
Shortly before the murder suicide, Belinda posted the below left picture with the caption, 'I love you too'.
Houston police Sgt Robert Blain declined to discuss the details of the 911 call.
He said family members told investigators that Espinoza had called them shortly before the incident and threatened suicide.
Neighbors who live near the home struggled to make sense of what happened.
