A Colorado man Damon Lamont Mathews allegedly killed his wife Rachel Phillips Mathews on New Years Eve, a week after being released on bail for domestic violence against her, reports the Durango Herald.

Rachel Phillips Mathews Age

Damon Lamont Mathews, 44, is charged with first degree murder in the death of Rachel Phillips Mathews, 47, at her home in Ignacio. Her family said her maiden name was Ream.

Mathews was living in a separate house on Ream’s property despite having a protective warrant against him, police said, and the two were celebrating New Years in that house when they started arguing.

According to police, Mathews strangled Ream, then went to the main house and took his car keys, money and a 9mm semi-automatic pistol which he had already shot in the head.

In Ream’s car, he drove several hours to Grand Junction and the Denver area, where a tire exploded, the Herald said. At that point, Mathews called 911 and said he believed there was an arrest warrant for murder.

“Damon said he knew if the police came he would go back to jail for the protection order and because he had been jailed for previous domestic violence with Rachel,” the investigator wrote.

Court records show Mathews was arrested on November 24 on charges of third degree assault and domestic violence after Ream went to hospital for being ‘mistreated’ by her husband.

Officers found him with multiple injuries, including a cut above his eye and multiple bruises and swelling. She told police that Matthews had also attacked her a few days earlier.

Mathews was waiting in a car outside the emergency room. According to court records, he changed his story several times while speaking to officials and was arrested. The next day, prosecutors posted a bond of $ 10,000, but it was set at $ 1,500 by a judge, despite a long history of domestic violence against Ream and other women.

He posted bail on December 25, a week before killing Rachel Ream. Mathews will be charged with domestic violence on January 21. A trial date for the murder charges has not been set.
