Scotland Neck, N.C. — A Scotland Neck man killed his wife Monday afternoon before turning a gun on himself, police said Tuesday.
Lakesha Jones, 31, went to her mother's home on East 8th Street after she and her husband had an argument, but Christopher Jones, 35, followed her there and continued talking with her, Scotland Neck Police Chief Joe Williams said.
Lakesha Jones' mother went outside to give them time to sort things out, but she then heard gunshots inside, Williams said.
Investigators found a 9-millimeter handgun in the house.
The Joneses had two children in middle school, and they are staying with grandparents, Williams said.
