New details emerge in apparent Chesterfield murder-suicide


An apparent murder-suicide of a mother and her son in Chesterfield came moments after a fight at the dinner table, according to court records.

Court records show a third person was at the home at the time of the shooting. Plus, an emergency protective order was taken out against the supposed shooter just months before that deadly night.

Court papers reveal Barbara and Jeffery Hogue were eating dinner with a third woman three weeks ago in the Lark Hill Lane home when a fight started and the mother and son went into a back bedroom.

According to this report, Barbara told the other woman in the home to run and that as she was running away, she heard three gun shots.

When police got to the home, they found Barbara dead on the porch. Her 43-year-old son was dead inside. Police say Jeffery apparently shot Barbara before turning the gun on himself.

But according to court records, this wasn't the first time Jeffery threatened his mother's life. Barbara actually took out an emergency protective order against Jeffery back in November.

In the compliant, Barbara says her son hid her phone, held her captive for four hours, and threatened to kill her. She wrote that he loses control and can be very dangerous, and that the violence was escalating.  

But the emergency protective order only lasts five days, and that night, they were all back in the same home the night of the deadly shooting. Inside the home, police did collect a gun, several cartridges, cell phones, eyeglasses, and slip-on sandals.
