MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) — New court documents show investigators came across a gruesome scene when probing the slaying of a Northern California woman whom Monterey police allege was dismembered by her ex-husband, a professor at a Navy graduate school.

According to a search warrant filed in Monterey County Superior Court this week, an FBI evidence response team found an ax and hand saws at the home where Monterey police say Norife "Janie" Herrera Jones died from multiple gunshot wounds before her body was mutilated.

Jones' remains were found Sept. 7, one week after her divorce from 69-year-old Lawrence Jones became final. Lawrence Jones has been a professor at the Naval Postgraduate School for 25 years.

The Monterey Herald reports ( ) a shotgun shell was also found in Jones' bloody, two-story home. He is in custody without bail in Monterey County Jail.
