Apple Valley man kills wife while 4 children are home, authorities say – Los Angeles Times

An Apple Valley man shot and killed his wife on Saturday with the couple’s four young children inside the house at the time of the shooting, authorities said.

Just before 10 p.m., Tom Robinson, 53, called 911 and told a dispatcher that he had killed his wife, 35-year-old Rocio Martinez, the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement.

Deputies arriving to the house in the 13300 block of Applewood Road three minutes after Robinson’s phone call found Martinez’s body inside, the department said.

The couple’s four children — ages 1, 4, 5 and 7 — were in the home, authorities said. None of them were injured. They were taken into the custody of the San Bernardino County Children Services.
