TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Court documents paint a very bloody picture of what happened at a home on Palm Brook Drive last week.

Court documents state that Toni Marie Mayfield called 911 saying she had killed her husband.

She was found kneeling on the driveway, blood covering most of her body and with three lacerations above her left eye.

Neighbors tell us what they heard on Friday night.

"That night we went to bed. I heard a crashing sound and something about 911," said neighbor Carrie Diana.

Court documents state police found blood in the kitchen, the hallway and a lot of it in the master bedroom.

Police reports also state there was a big hole in the door of that master bedroom, and inside was Jerry Mayfield, a nurse at St. Joseph's Hospital, lying face down in a large pool of blood with a gun in his hand.

Police reports state they found a hammer covered with "a blood like substance in the hallway."

Court documents state Toni mayfield made an "utterance that her husband, Jerry Mayfield, had become mad at her and she ran into the master bedroom.  Jerry broke the door and because she was scared she began to hit him and hit him."

A close friend of the Mayfield family said she was sad to see the mugshot. "This has got to be something that got out of hand. When i saw that mugshot, poor baby. That's what I told my husband. Only they know what happened in that house."
