An Ohio mother of five and assistant volleyball coach was fatally shot by her estranged husband on Sunday, despite having called police just hours earlier to tell them the man had a gun, the Dayton Daily News reports. Marny L. Wilson told a police dispatcher that Keith Wilson had evaded being served with a restraining order and had taken items from their former home.
"They told me to stay in the house," she says on a recording. "But I don't know if he'll come back, and he does have a gun."
At 4:41 p.m. Sunday, police received a 911 call from one of Wilson's daughters, saying that her mother had been shot and killed. "My mom has a restraining order on my dad, and my dad just shot my mom," the caller said in a 911 audio recording obtained by the Dayton Daily News.
Keith Wilson, 44, was arrested early Monday by Indianapolis police. Before the shooting, he was being sought by Montgomery County domestic relations court after failing to appear for a recent court hearing.
Sadly, it seems that, while Marny did what she could to protect herself, her trust in the police dispatcher's instructions might have led to her demise. The only thing worse than a story involving the senseless and violent loss of human life is one that could have easily been prevented.
