SAN DIEGO -- Court documents detail a troubled past for a man accused of killing his grandmother and uncle in Otay Mesa.

Donna Chatterfield and her son, Kenneth Chatterfield, were stabbed multiple times in her home Monday. Police arrested Raymond Chatterfield at a Jack in the Box about a mile away from the crime scene. He's scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.

Documents show Raymond lived with his grandmother Donna since he was born in 1986. Although Donna cared for him, records show his behavior was erratic.

Raymond's criminal past goes back several years with arrests for theft, methamphetamine and being under the influence of a controlled substance.

The violence by Raymond against his grandmother went back to 2008. A previous case said Raymond grabbed his grandmother and hit her. She suffered bruises and a chipped tooth.

Donna filed a restraining order in 2013. Records say her grandson was on Seroquel to control his anti-psychotic behavior, but refused to take his medication. That's when his grandmother wrote he became "wild and belligerent."

She wrote that “he grabbed my glasses off of my face, threw them, and spit in my face." It went on to say she was “afraid next time he might strike me, push me, or otherwise hurt me."

The most recent restraining order against Raymond by Donna was filed on November 5. Raymond served some time in jail, but was released Monday morning, just hours before the murders. 

Donna's daughter started a Go Fund Me page to help the family pay for funeral costs.
