A Charles County man apparently shot and killed his wife, then killed himself early Saturday at their home in White Plains, the sheriff's department said.

Police were called to the home in the 3400 block of Amberton Court around 7:30 a.m. by one of the couple's three children, who reported hearing gunshots.

When authorities arrived, they found Candace Carnathan, 33, in an upstairs bedroom dead from a gunshot wound. Her husband, Calvin Carnathan, also 33, was found dead nearby.

A day earlier, the woman obtained a temporary restraining order against her husband, authorities said.
