Professional wrestler Charles Williams and his wife were found dead inside his Pennsylvania home, moments after the star shot his spouse and then turned the gun on himself in a horrific murder-suicide.

According to the West Goshen Police, Charles, 52, committed the crime as his two children were sleeping next door.

As RadarOnline.com has learned from the report, the 10-year-old boy and girl twins were the first to find the bodies the next morning. It was also them who alerted the police.

"An autopsy revealed that Ms. Williams died of gunshot wounds to the chest and head, with the manner of death being homicide. The cause of death for Charles Williams, 52, of the same address, was a gunshot wound to the head, with the manner determined to be suicide," The Chester County Coroner’s Office exclusively told Radar in a statement. "

Toxicology tests for Charles Williams are pending. The case is under the jurisdiction of the West Goshen police which is continuing its investigation," the statement continued.

Stephanie Burnett Williams’ brother started a GoFundMe page for the now-deceased mother’s expenses.

“My nephew only being 10 years old found both his mommy and daddy. He took their pulse and then ran upstairs to get his sister and had to tell her what happened,” he wrote on the page. “They both had to pass their mother and father again on the way out while my nephew also retrieved their dog Appolo.”

He added that the young boy had moved the gun out of his father’s hand after finding him so that no one else could get hurt. He took both Charles and Stephanie’s pulses before calling 911.

After cops came, the boy admitted that his father had killed his mother and then himself.

“This is just an ounce of strength and courage this child has shown” wrote boy’s uncle, adding that he and sis twin sister are “devastated” by the untimely death of their parents.
