Kennie Sue Mitchell had a permanent protective order against her husband.

Officers said there were signs of a domestic struggle at the scene, and Joseph Mitchell was covered in blood but barely injured.

"[There was] a significant amount of blood and a significant amount of carnage in the home to indicate a struggle has occurred inside," homicide detective Sgt. Dave Walker said.

Joseph Mitchell is an ex-convict with a prior record of drug possession, illegal possession of a firearm and two DUIs.

A Facebook profile attributed to Joseph Mitchell says he has been "happily married for 11 years" to Kennie Sue.
