The woman, who was not home at the time of the shooting, also reportedly filed for divorce in April.


The mother claimed Halstead had been verbally and physically abusive during their relationship, according to two petitions obtained by The Modesto Bee. She alleged that Halstead frequently called her names and threatened her, as well as restraining and strangling her during an argument earlier this year.
