New Castle Shooting Suspect's Wife Barred From Seeing Grandkids

Posted: Updated:

WILMINGTON, Del. - The wife of a man accused of killing two women, shooting two police officers, and then shooting himself, is now forbidden from seeing her grandchildren.

On Tuesday, a Family Court judge issued an order that states that Lenore Matusiewicz, 67, of Texas, can't have any contact or be within 1,000 feet of her grandchildren, who are the children of their son David Matusiewicz, and Christine Belford.

Lenore's husband, Thomas Matusiewicz, reportedly shot Belford and her friend, Lauren Mulford, along with two police officers, at the New Castle County Courthouse on Monday morning.

In 2009, Lenore was prosecuted by the Office of the Attorney General, for helping David, kidnap his and Belford's three children. The two then fled with the kids to Canada, Texas, Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and eventually Nicaragua, where the U.S. Marshall's Service caught up with them.

Lenore was convicted of 3 counts of endangering the welfare of a child, and was sentenced to 18 months in state prison.

David was convicted of one federal count of bank fraud, and got a 48-month sentence, along with one federal count of international kidnapping, and got a 36-month sentence for that. After serving his time, he was released from federal custody in September of 2012, at which time the Attorney General's Office ended his parental rights.
