Michael Rodney Kane, 46, allegedly murdered his wife, Michelle Ann Kane, 43, on Saturday morning outside a house where she was staying with a friend.

Kane was arrested on Monday morning at a motel in Joshua Tree.

According to LAPD documents, Michelle had previously sought police protection against Michael.

She filed a restraining order against him, which he reportedly violated on the night before her death.

Police were called when a man in a baseball cap who resembled Kane smashed the windows of her townhouse.

The couple’s two young children were staying with their mother at the friend’s house.

They were not hurt and were in the custody of relatives, authorities said.
