New details emerged Tuesday in the case involving a woman accused of murdering her two family members.
Chesterfield police Detective Michael Morgott testified in a preliminary hearing in that Estelle Jones admitted to killing her husband, Joseph, and son, Perry.
Jones is facing two counts of first-degree murder in their deaths.
Morgott said when he arrived to their home in the 11900 block of River Road on April 19, he found Joseph, 71, in the fetal position in the home's den in front of a chair with six gunshot wounds. He was half covered with a sheet.
The couple's son, Perry, 51, was found dead in bed with his arms crossed. He was half covered with a sheet.
Morgott said Jones later told him at the station in a statement she got into a verbal augment with her husband and he said, "I could've married someone better than you."
Shortly thereafter, she went to the bedroom, retrieved a gun and shot her husband five times. She told detectives she was afraid her husband was not dead and she got a second gun and shot him a sixth time.
Their disabled son, Perry, was upset. She sat in bed with him all night trying to console him.
Upon realizing her future, she was concerned for her son who needed 24 hour care and she decided to kill him.
She told detectives she held a gun to his head but decided she could not pull the trigger. Around lunchtime April 19, she took a belt and strangled her son. Later that day, she called 911 around 6 p.m.
A judge certified the case to the grand jury.
