CHESTERFIELD, Va. (AP) - A Chesterfield County judge has found probable cause to send first-degree murder charges to a grand jury involving a 70-year-old woman accused of shooting her husband and strangling her disabled son.

 

Juvenile and Domestic Relations Judge Lynn S. Brice made the determination Tuesday in the case against Estelle Virginia Jones of Matoaca.

Chesterfield County police Detective Michael Morgott interviewed Jones following the deaths on April 18 and 19.

 

Morgott testified Jones detailed how she shot her 71-year-old husband, Joseph E. Jones, six times after they got into an argument, then used a belt the next day to fatally strangle her 51-year-old son, Perry Jones.
