(Scroll down for video) A woman filed a petition in court and she was granted an order of protection to keep her husband away from her.

Sadly, he did not follow the court order, and killed his wife and himself, leaving their 2 young children as orphans.

Police were called to a home in Vermont, after the woman was found seriously injured outside her home, and her husband died after suffering an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Police said Molly McLain was found across the road from her Maidstone home with severe injuries to her head and torso. She was pronounced dead in a hospital.

Her husband, Jason McLain, was found in the house. He was taken to the hospital, where he died. One neighbor told police that Jason brought the couple’s two children, who are 2 and 4-years-old, to her home and there was blood on him.

Jason was banned from having any contact with his wife, and she received sole custody of the children after McLain was arrested last month on an assault charge against her.

Molly accused her husband of abusing her and using drugs.
