SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Court documents say a mother of three children who were killed by their father at a Sacramento church had sought a restraining order last year out of fear for their safety.
Thirty-nine-year-old David Mora killed his daughters, ages 13, 10 and 9, on Monday. He also shot a man who was chaperoning Mora's supervised visit with the girls, and then killed himself.
His estranged girlfriend obtained a restraining order last year, describing him in court documents as jealous and mentally unstable.
She said Mora had threatened to kill her. Mora also was arrested a few days ago for a drunken assault on a California Highway Patrol officer.
