POST FALLS, Idaho -

A Post Falls man is in police custody while detectives investigate the death of a woman and young girl. 

The Post Falls Police Department said in a press release they were called to a home near 15th and Spokane Street on Tuesday for a welfare check after a neighbor called to say the man showed up at her home and told her he had just strangled his wife and young daughter. The neighbor said the man then took off in a car, however officers quickly located him near Spokane Street and Poleline and detained him. 

Detectives then went to the man's apartment and found the wife and child dead inside. 

Post Falls Police arrested 24-year-old Angel Albertica Morales-Larranaga is currently incarcerated at the Kootenai County Public Safety Building, being held on two counts of murder. At this time the victims have not been identified, however we are told the woman killed was married to Morales-Larranaga and the child was his step-daughter.

According to the Post Falls Police Department it appears that the suspect acted alone in this case. Two additional children, who lived in the home, are safe and have been placed into State custody.

The Post Falls Police Department is asking if you have any information to tell them about this case, to please call them at 208-773-3517.
