DALLAS (AP) - Police say they discovered a note and pills in the home where a Frisco couple was found dead earlier this month. But they're not revealing the contents of the note. The dead woman -- Pallavi Dhawan -- was being investigated in the death of the couple's 10-year-old son who was found in the same house in January.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - A North Texas woman who pleaded guilty to murder in the death of her husband has been sentenced to 18 years in prison. Neola Robinson admitted her guilt Monday just before the start of her trial in Fort Worth. In 2010, the woman told investigators her missing husband Ervin had run off with another woman. His body was found last year, buried in the yard of their Pelican Bay home.

HOUSTON (AP) - The lawyer for a Houston cancer doctor accused of lacing her lover's coffee with a chemical found in antifreeze says it's not a case of "fatal attraction" as prosecutors contend. He told jurors that it's possible other people may be responsible for poisoning the man, who is also a doctor. Prosecutors say it happened after he broke off their love affair. Ana Maria Gonzalez-Angulo is charged with aggravated assault.

CONROE, Texas (AP) - Adrian Peterson will have his first Texas court appearance on child abuse charges next month in Conroe. Peterson was scheduled for a Wednesday arraignment but his lawyer is out of the country. The Minnesota Vikings have reinstated Peterson and he's released a statement saying he is sorry for hurting his son and that he isn't a child abuser.
