Confusion

I'm a little confused by this report, about a man who has apparently committed suicide when on bail after some pretty violent assaults, up to attempted murder.

"He was also accused of assaulting his mother, Elizabeth Jordan, his wife Laura and his wife's aunt, Karen Mimms."

"he was conditionally bailed to stay with his parents and made the subject of a curfew."

"He was also banned from having any contact with his wife and other people connected with the case."

He's being ordered to stay with his parents, yet one of those parents is presumably his mother, one of the victims of his assault and therefore connected with the case. How was he supposed to satisfy the conditions imposed upon him?

(Apart from suicide.)
