Man fatally shoots wife, mother-in-law, commits suicide

MARYDEL -- A 37-year-old man under a court order to stay away apparently fatally shot his wife and mother-in-law yesterday morning in their Marydel home before killing himself, state police reported.

Police identified the victims as 22-year-old Aeriela Aguilar and her mother, Sylvia Aguilar Morales, 41. Each had been shot once in the head inside their home on Main Street.

A witness told police that the gunman, Ernesto Bamaca, removed two young children from the home and put them in a pickup truck shortly before 9 a.m. He went back inside, shot Aguilar, kicked down a bedroom door and shot Morales, police said.

Investigators found that the victims had obtained a protective order last month against Bamaca, who was charged in a summons with assault and had moved out of the home. Bamaca was arrested last week by Delaware State Police on a concealed weapons charge, but police said firearms were not involved in that incident.

State troopers and county sheriff's deputies were sent to the home to investigate a 911 call from a distraught woman and were met at the door by the witness, police said.

Sgt. Kevin L. Daniels, a police spokesman, said detectives from the Northeastern and Southeastern districts entered Fells Point Antique Mart and GMS Antiques, both in the 600 block of S. Broadway, and Ark Antiques in the 1700 block of Aliceanna St. on Friday and seized windows that had been reported stolen by their owners in burglaries and thefts.

The total value of the windows, some with the address number of the homes from which they were taken, was not known. No arrests were made and the investigation is continuing, police said.
