Texas Doctor Kills Ex-Wife, Self

July 6, 1999

SOUTHLAKE, Texas (AP) _ A man who recently lost custody of his daughters shot his ex-wife to death during her morning jog Monday and then killed himself.

Detectives believe Dr. Scott Chester Stone, of Tarboro, N.C., hid in a wooded area to wait for his wife, Dr. Marisa Deneen Jackson. She and the couple’s daughters, ages 6 and 8, had been staying in this upscale Fort Worth suburb with Stone’s sister.

``Obviously, he probably knew (the morning jog) was a regular thing for her,″ police spokesman Robert Finn said.

A divorce court in North Carolina awarded custody of the girls to their mother last week.

``One of the conditions of the custody agreement was that he could have the girls for six weeks in the summer,″ Finn said.

However, police said Stone did not tell his wife or his sister he was coming to Southlake.
