A Wisconsin woman whose husband killed her and two others at the spa where she worked said he threatened to throw acid in her face and jealously terrorized her "every waking moment," according to court documents.
Authorities say Radcliffe Franklin Haughton, 45, killed three women, including his 42-year-old wife, Zina Haughton, and wounded four others Sunday before turning the gun on himself.
The Waukesha County medical examiner's office on Monday identified the dead as Zina Haughton; Cary L. Robuck, 35, of Racine; and Maelyn M. Lind, 38, of Oconomowoc. All were found in the spa.
In a written request for a restraining order filed Oct. 8, Zina Haughton said her husband was convinced she was cheating on him and that aside from the acid threat he also vowed to burn her and her family with gas. He said he would kill her if she ever left him or called the police, according to the court papers obtained Monday by The Associated Press.
"His threats terrorize my every waking moment," she wrote. In a separate police report, she said the couple was in the process of getting a divorce and "we are always arguing."
Haughton was arrested earlier this month for slashing his wife's tires; she was granted a four-year restraining order on Thursday.
Under the order, Haughton was prohibited from owning a firearm. But police said Monday that Haughton bought the .40-caliber semiautomatic handgun used in the deadly shooting two days later.

lag time in the paperwork?
Her lawyer probably wasn’t one of the people shot.....
He also signed the recall petition for Scott Walker..wonder if the media will say that he was a leftist
Looks like he might be another son of 0bama.
Too late now......
“he threatened to throw acid in her face”
Isn’t that the Muslim’s SOP?
I don't know, are you inferring that the guy was a muslim?
Is that a muslim SOP also?
Yes. Throwing acid in the face of women is what Muslims tend to do. Not that we’ll see this reported.
Are murder via guns muslim SOP also?
Are murder via guns muslim SOP also?
It doesn't matter. Regardless of any court order a real criminal will find/buy/steal a weapon for his purposes. No background check makes a difference. There are entirely too many laws, permits, and tax stamps in place that make it difficult for the vast majority of law abiding citizens to buy weapons to protect themselves and property,whether it be from criminals, family member or the government.
We need a new gun law because obviously, the current gun laws aren’t enough.
How about a law that says it’s against the law to buy a gun 2 days after the court has ordered a person to turn in their firearms.
There, that should do it.
A new law or 10 will fix that!
Yep - if a restraining order would work, it's not necessary because the person isn't likely to do anything. If the person is a real threat, all the order does is pi$$ them off more.
The law allow this fellow to cool off.
More important is that the spa was a gun free victim zone they had no chance to defend them self.
more proof the “Lautenburg Amendment” is as useless a law as is hiding behind a piece of paper called “Order for Protection”.
If the courts/police REALLY believe someone is in danger, either post a 24/7 armed cop or give them a fast-track /same day carry permit.( and/or STFU)
