Zina Haughton wasn’t supposed to see or hear from her husband again for four years. He had slashed her tires and fought with her in their Brown Deer, Wisc., home, court records stated. And according to a petition for a restraining order she filed in Milwaukee County in early October, he had threatened to throw acid in her face and set her on fire with gasoline. “He said he would kill me if I left him or ever contacted the police,” Haughton, 42, said in court papers.
Less than two weeks later, police said, Radcliffe Haughton, 45, walked into the Brookfield spa and hair salon where she worked on Sunday and killed her in a mass shooting that left two other women dead and four more women wounded, one critically. Haughton then shot himself to death, according to authorities. The pair is survived by two of their children.
