    A Ft. Washington, Md. woman was killed by her ex-husband Tuesday night, just weeks after their divorce was final. News4's Prince George's County Bureau Chief Tracee Wilkins reports.

    A man murdered his ex-wife in the parking lot of a Fort Washington, Md., apartment complex on her birthday, Prince George's County Police said.

    Officers were called to the Westwood Place Apartments on Jaywick Avenue around 1 a.m. Wednesday and found Lester Lee Fletcher Jr., 32, and Michelle Miranda-Fletcher, 32, dead in the parking lot of apparent gunshot wounds.

    Investigators believe Michelle was returning home from celebrating her 32nd birthday and found her ex-husband waiting for her when she arrived. Police say Lester drove up to her car and threatened her before shooting her multiple times. He then turned the gun on himself. The couple had a 13-year-old son.
