Feb. 12, 2018
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Court documents say an Evansville man accused of shooting his wife and a second man had threatened to shoot the woman on multiple occasions.
They say 33-year-old Daniel Sears threatened to shoot and kill 31-year-old Maygen Sears by phone and text messages from Jan. 4 to 11.
Police say Daniel Sears was found dead in his SUV at the Vanderburgh County 4H Center on Sunday after he allegedly shot and killed Maygen Sears and 41-year-old Richard Popp of Worthville, Kentucky. Popp was shot in a car.
Maygen Sears filed for a protection order against Daniel Sears in January and was granted a temporary 30-day order pending a hearing. That order expired Monday, the day the couple was set to appear in court.
