LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) -

Investigators are trying to determine whether a woman found dead in a burning West Texas duplex was killed by her husband.

Lubbock police Sgt. Jonathan Stewart said officers arrived to find a blood-covered man outside the home Tuesday. Stewart said the man claims he killed his wife then set the duplex on fire.
    
Names of the pair haven't been released. Police said the man was taken to a Lubbock hospital for treatment of injuries mainly suffered from the fire.
    
Police did not immediately return a message Wednesday to provide additional details.
    
No charges were immediately filed.
