Updated October 10, 2013:  Rondias Webb was sentenced to second degree murder in the death of his estranged wife, Monica Webb.

Webb was sentenced to life in prison for the murder charge, then 15 years for Armed Criminal Action, as well as one year for violation of a protective order which will run consecutively.  Monica had obtained a protection order against Webb after he was charged with assaulting her.

Prosecutors say in November 2012 Monica was shot inside the Joplin, Missouri home where she had moved to get away from her husband.  Police say Webb shot himself after shooting his wife.

In a separate case, Webb was sentenced to four years in prison for Driving While under the Influence.

Rondias Webb is charged with first degree murder and criminal action.

Police say he murdered his estranged wife, Monica Webb.

Rondias appeared in court today by video without an attorney, where he entered his not guilty plea.

Late last month, police responded to Monica's home on East 15th Street where they found Monica with three gunshot wounds to the head.

Rondias was later found with a single gunshot wound to the head.  He recovered in a hospital.

Joplin police say 35 year old Ronald Webb, Monica's estranged husband, was also found in the home with a gunshot wound.

"We don't often find two people with gun shot wounds at the same time so right now we are looking for a motive and any evidence or anyone with information on this," says Patrol Supervisor Sgt. Jared Delzell.

As of Sunday morning Ronald Webb was in critical condition.

Police say they will continue to investigate what happened and that currently no one is in custody.

An autopsy will be performed on Monica's body.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Joplin Police Department.
