Husband Kills Wife At Work, Himself

Compiled From Wire Services
 

A man under a restraining order because of threats against his estranged wife went to her office Friday, shot her to death and then killed himself, police said.

Robert Montgomery entered the National City Bank office of his wife, Donna Montgomery, and ordered a customer to leave. He closed the office door and drew the blinds.

The bodies were discovered five hours later when police entered the woman’s office.

Donna Montgomery had filed a petition for divorce Tuesday. A restraining order issued the same day said the couple was separated and that she had filed for divorce because her husband had been violent and threatening.

Montgomery was a self-employed farmer and automobile broker from Cicero, about 15 miles northeast of Carmel. His wife was a loan officer at the bank in Carmel, a well-to-do suburb just north of Indianapolis.
