ROSENBERG, Texas (AP) - Authorities say they are looking for a Texas prison guard accused of stabbing his wife and mother-in-law to death in front of children.

Rosenberg police Lt. Colin Davidson says 44-year-old Albert James Turner is facing murder charges after an argument at the home of his in-laws turned violent early Sunday in the Houston suburb.

Davidson tells the Houston Chronicle that Turner was identified as the suspect by eyewitnesses, including a child who called 911.

The sound of children screaming can be heard in the background on the tape.

Police say Turner could be headed to the Orlando, Fla., area, where he has family.

The victims were Turner's 39-year-old wife, Keitha Frank Turner, and her mother, 66-year-old Betty Jo Frank.
