A Hobart man fatally shot his wife in the head Monday night while their two children -- including a 10-month-old baby -- were in the same apartment, police said Tuesday. Police say Tyrone Jones shot Mia K. Jones at the Lake in the Woods Apartment Complex. They lived at Apartment 735, 77 Neringa Lane.
At 11:36 p.m., a man suspected to be Jones called 911 saying he needed an ambulance for his wife, who had been shot.
Mia Jones was found inside her bedroom. Lake County Coroner's office pronounced her dead at the scene at 12:35 a.m.
A Hobart woman police said was shot and killed by her husband last week is being laid to rest today. Mia K. Jones' funeral is set for 11 a.m. Tuesday at Mount Moriah Baptist Church, 735 E. 20th Ave., in Gary, with burial to follow at Evergreen Memorial Park in Hobart.
Jones was 25. She had two sons with her husband, Tyrone Jones. The boys, ages 3 and 10 months, were inside the family's third-story apartment July 17, at the Lake in the Woods complex, when Tyrone Jones shot and killed his wife, police said.

So they may not be forgotten...
News articles disappear after time, sometimes within weeks. This website won't disappear. It was brought about because of my absolute disgust with April Will's death in Indianapolis. After the shock wore off, I decided to make sure nobody would forget the victims. Feel free to contact me with victims to add if they have not been added yet. I am working at adding victims for the past several years, at least back to 2004. Beyond that, it is difficult to find information. I am adding any domestic violence death in Indiana (however I am not listing perpetrators that died as a result of murder-suicide).
I have done my best to try and find pictures of all the dear victims so they will not be forgotten. If not available, a burning candle or angel is placed instead. If you have a picture of one of the victims you'd like to share, please contact me at the email address below. Thank you.
