DALLAS — The recently resigned chairwoman of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit and her husband were found dead in their south Dallas home Monday night in what authorities described as an apparent murder-suicide.

Lynn Flint Shaw was named head of the agency by her colleagues in October. She resigned about six weeks ago amid allegations about a purportedly forged document she presented to avoid repaying a personal debt. She had been a DART board member since 2003. Her husband, Rufus Shaw Jr., was a local political analyst and a main contributor to dallasblog.com.
