Husband defies court order and kills wife and himself

A woman who obtained a protective order against her husband died early Sunday when the man forced a gate, entered the home and shot her in the head. Then the man killed himself.

Neither the dead woman nor her husband were identified immediately by the Judicial Investigating Organization. An agency report said that the shootings happened in Concepción de Tres Ríos. The woman was 27 and the man was 22, the report said.

The man arrived at the home about 1:30 a.m., judicial agents said. The agency confirmed that the woman has sought a protective order against the man after they had separated.
