Another horrifying case of domestic violence that leaves two young children dead along with their grandmother and the children’s mother – who is suspected of committing the killings in San Clemente, California.

Investigators are performing tests on the handgun to determine if Elizabeth Fontaine or her mother, 67-year old Bonnie Hoult, committed the crimes.

Fontaine apparently had lost custody of her two children (Catherine – 4, Julia – 2) and was ordered by the court to relinquish possession of the children their Aunt, sister of the children’s father.

This story is just developing so the circumstances surround Fontaine’s recent move to Houston and the changing custodial arrangement remain unclear.

From the article:

John York, an attorney for the children’s father, said Wednesday Elizabeth Fontaine had been told to return to Orange County court with her daughters later Monday for a final ruling.

The killings occurred only hours after the court’s ruling.
