A Texas woman was found dead two days after she signed a $250,000 life insurance policy, and her husband has been charged with her murder, according to police.

Christopher Collins, 41, has been charged in the death of his wife, Yuan Hua Liang, after her body was found inside their Cypress home on November 18.

Police said Collins went to 'great lengths' to convince investigators his wife was killed by intruders in their home on Clayton Bluff in the Houston area. 

Prosecutors say the military veteran killed his wife just two days after Liang signed a life insurance police worth $250,000. 

Liang, 46, was found to have a single gunshot wound to the head, medical examiners said.

A police report states Collins called Harris County Sheriff's Deputies to request a welfare check on his 46-year-old wife, pictured

 Authorities believe the bullet was fired from a .22- or .25-caliber firearm. 

Collins reportedly told deputies that his wife had bought him a .9-mm. pistol, but added he didn't have ammunition.

However, officers later found a .22-mm cartridge inside Collins' pocket.

A cloth bag that was placed over her head was determined to have been put there after her death, an autopsy found.   

Deputies added that a neighbor had reported hearing an argument from the home the same day Liang's body was discovered by authorities.

Police also noted that there were four dogs found unharmed in the couple's backyard.    

A police report states Collins called Harris County Sheriff's Deputies to request a welfare check on his wife. 

Collins called the non-emergency hotline around 3:15 pm for a welfare check after claiming he had received a text message from Liang about someone breaking into their home while he worked out at a nearby gym and went to get something to eat, he told police according to Click2Houston. 

'The caller reported that he lost contact with his wife, shortly after she reported a suspicious male near their residence,' the police report reads.

'The deputy entered the residence with the husband and they discovered the wife deceased, inside the house.'

Court documents state that Collins 'paused momentarily in the doorway, dropped his bags and ran into the living room where Liang was found lying on the floor with visible blood on her shirt and a bag covering her head,' KHOU reported.

'(There were) no signs of forced entry into the home from inside. The officers observed the backdoor was unlocked, and four dogs were in the backyard,' a prosecutor in the case said.

However, investigators said they found no signs of forced entry or a break-in, with nothing having been stolen from the house, according to the report.

Collins , pictured, is being held on a $150,000 bond, and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday

Collins has owned the home for the past eight years, authorities said.

He is being held on a $150,000 bond, and is expected to make his first court appearance on Monday. 

When asked by officers why he didn't check the home's surveillance cameras, Collins said there was no recording and that the cameras only picked up a live feed. 

He allegedly told police he used the cameras to check on his wife whenever he was working outside of the country, according to KHOU.  

Collins also told police that he didn't immediately return home, claiming his wife had paranoid tendencies, with the husband telling dispatchers the welfare check 'was probably nothing.'

Citing Backlog Progress, Ports Again Delay Fines For Idling Containers

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – The ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach announced Friday that implementation of a fee on companies whose import containers linger at marine terminals will be delayed again, with it now potentially taking effect, if necessary, next Friday.

The Container Dwell Fee has been delayed numerous times due to progress in reducing the number of containers at the terminals — with the ports reporting Friday a 67% combined decline in aging cargo on the docks since the fee was announced.

Over the next week, port officials will monitor and reassess the fee’s implementation.

The fee was also delayed on Nov. 22 and 29; Dec. 6, 13, 20 and 27; and Jan. 3, 10, 14 and 21.

The fee is one of several efforts aimed at speeding the processing of cargo at the San Pedro Port Complex to eliminate a backlog of ships trying to deliver merchandise. Port of Los Angeles officials said when the policy was announced that about 40% of import containers were idling at terminals for at least nine days.

Harbor commissions for both Long Beach and Los Angeles unanimously approved the policy on Oct. 29, to be in effect for 90 days. The Harbor Commission on Jan. 13 voted 5-0 to extend the program through April 29.

“Merely announcing the fee reduced the number of those idling containers by more than 60%. The results have been phenomenal and I’m happy to say we have not implemented the fee,” Port of Los Angeles Executive Director Gene Seroka said during his State of the Port speech on Jan. 20.

The fines, if implemented, will begin at $100 per container, increasing by $100 per container each day. Containers set to be transported by truck and rail will incur fines if they remain at the port for nine days or more.

Fees collected from the policy will be reinvested into programs that aim to enhance efficiency, accelerate cargo velocity and address congestion impacts.

The policy to implement fees was developed in coordination with the Biden-Harris Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force, the U.S. Department of Transportation, the Port of Long Beach and supply chain stakeholders.

On Dec. 30, the Port of Los Angeles announced an additional planned fee on carriers with empty containers that linger for at least nine days on marine terminals. That fee needs to be approved by the Los Angeles Harbor Commission.
