Husband Exacts Deadly Revenge When Wife Disrupts His Sleep

A man shot his wife and the mother of his children in the head. He told police his wife 'wouldn't let me sleep.'

Penny Jones-Barker, 28, was sitting on the sofa next to her sister on Tuesday night. Her husband Dorian Barker, 31, walked into the room with a gun and shot her in the head 13 times. The couple's children, ages 5 and 11, were both asleep in an adjoining room.

Police were called to the home in Indianapolis for a domestic disturbance and found Barker standing on the front step. Police report Barker told them, "I just killed my wife."

"She's been trying to kill me all day. (She) wouldn't let me sleep," he told the police.

When police read Barker his Miranda rights at the station, Barker reportedly interrupted to snatch the paper from the officer. He crumpled it into a ball.

The sister witnessed the alleged shooting and claims she told Barker that he was scaring her. She asked him to put the gun away, but instead he unloaded the entire magazine into his wife's head.

Barker had been arrested twice previously for domestic violence in other relationships. The charges had been dropped both times.
