Mr. & Mrs. K. Y. Jones

???? ~ Aug 4, 1913

Last Monday K. Y. Jones of Elk City shot and killed his wife and then committed suicide.

From the best report that we can get is that Jones and his wife had had some trouble prior to this time, and Mrs. Jones had deserted him going to her mother, who lives near Foss, where their three children are now.

On Last Monday, she returned to Elk City after something she had left and was at the home of Charles Rash when Jones called her out into the back yard where he, without any warning, grabs her about the neck and placed a revolver aginst her breast and fired the shot that produced instant death.

After he saw that she was dead, he directed the revolver toward himself and fired the second shot, which wheeled him into eternity.

They leave three children, the oldest about 14 years of age to mourn their death.
