SHERMAN, TX -- Sherman Police have released the names of two women who lived together killed in two unrelated incidents Sunday.

45-year-old Leonard Neyland was arrested for manslaughter police say he called 911 Sunday morning to report his wife was sick and needed help.

When they arrived, they found 26-year-old Sarah Neyland dead.

Police say Neyland had run her over with his car then taken her home before calling police.

At about the same time, police responded to a single vehicle car crash.

A woman driving on Friendship Road, just a few miles away from the Neyland's residence, had crashed into a tree and her car caught on fire.

Police say that woman was Neyland's sister, 43-year-old Michelle Wheat, who lived with Neyland and his wife.

Police say these incidents are not related.

Sgt. D.M. Hampton said, "They're still investigating that to find out what caused that accident, but like I said they're not related as far as that's concerned."

Sgt. Hampton says both investigations are ongoing.

Neyland's bond is set at $200,000 dollars.
