Jim was married to Kaitlyn Watson and began cheating on her for an unknown period of time. His wife eventually found out. This led to a tragic set of circumstances where both of them ended up dead.
The police get a call out to their house and found the dead couple where they put in a call to Homicide. After this Detective Mike Anderson was sent to investigate the murders with the assistance from Forensic Blood Spatter Analyst Dexter Morgan. After they get to the scene, Mike initially thinks its a double murder but Dexter notices the wounds on the body and finds the husband's cell phone under the couch.
Dexter determines from this and the photo of the husband with the nude woman on the cellphone, that the wife likely committed the murders. This was confirmed after Dexter lifted the wife's body and found the gun used to kill both her and her husband. After the case is solved, Lieutenant Debra Morgan moves into their house and pays only three fourths of the normal rent, due to the difficulty of the Landlord would have in finding a tenant after the recent murders.
