The night her husband finally came for her, raging, jealous and armed with a pistol, Natasha Whyte-Dell was surrounded by her seven children in their house by the cemetery.

Patrick Alexander Dell, 41 - whose growing anger and increasingly violent behavior has been chronicled in court records and police reports for the past three years - forced his way inside early Monday and started shooting. When he was finished, Whyte-Dell, 36, and four of her children were dead, according to city police, neighbors, relatives and friends. A fifth lay bleeding from a gunshot wound to the neck but would survive.
