BETHEL — A woman killed in a murder-suicide had a court order protecting her from a man officials say killed her inside a house on Reservoir Street Tuesday night.

Traci-Marie Jones, 52, was a murder victim and Lester Jones, 58, died of suicide, the state’s chief medical examiner’s office said Wednesday. Both died from gunshot wounds, according to the coroner’s office.

As of late Wednesday afternoon, Bethel police had not released their identities.

Records show the two were married in 1999 and link public records with their Reservoir Street home, where police said the shooting occurred around 10:50 pm on Tuesday.

Records show Traci-Marie Jones obtained a court order against Lester Jones on January 24, a week before the fatal shooting. Her orders prohibited him from making contact with her, required him to stay at least 100 yards from her, and surrender all her firearms and ammunition to her.

The filing states that Lester Jones was allegedly in possession of “one or more firearms.”
