    A woman was found dead in a Novato residence Monday morning and a family member suspected in the slaying killed herself in San Francisco, a police lieutenant said.

    Police found the victim after they received a request from a family member for a welfare check at a residence in the 300 block of Silvio Lane around 6 a.m., Novato police Lt. Oliver Collins said.

    The woman had suffered significant injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene, Collins said.

    A female family member in her early 30s suspected of the homicide was discovered with a self-inflicted wound in a vehicle near the Great Highway in San Francisco later Monday morning and was pronounced dead at a hospital, police said.
