HAMPTON -- 13News has found out more about the domestic situation that left four people dead on Wednesday.

A shooting, stabbing, and a fire all haunted the house on Ravenscroft Lane. Thursday afternoon, police said the Hampton Fire Department Fire Marshal ruled the fire as arson.

38-year-old Carla Williams was burned, stabbed and shot. Police say she had a restraining order against her estranged husband, Travis Williams. Police found him on the roof that morning. He exchanged gunfire with police and was hit. He later died.

The couple's one year old daughter, Tori, and Carla's grandmother, Katie Frye, were found dead upstairs in the burning home.

The Medical Examiner's Office in early May determined that the little girl and Ms. Frye died from smoke inhalation. However, they noted little Tori had a cut on her neck and Frye suffered from blunt force trauma.

The day after the killings, forensics experts were at the home collecting more evidence to submitted to the state lab to determine which accelerant was used.

The couple was in the middle of a divorce, and neighbors knew Williams had a restraining order against her husband. They say they knew to call her or 911 if they saw his vehicle in the neighborhood.

'He intended to do everything that he did, and he came here to die because I don't think he really made any effort to leave,' said neighbor Shelton Snow.

A court document details a January incident where Travis Williams allegedly came to the home, yelled at this wife for taking his things, pulled her from the shower and dragged her across the floor.

Carla Williams had worked for the Newport News School District for 15 years.

Both the criminal and internal investigation in reference to the police involved shooting is still ongoing.
