Records show slain Vegas mom feared for herself, children


LAS VEGAS (AP) — Records show a Las Vegas mom who police say was shot and killed by her estranged husband, before he also killed their three children and himself, had tried to get a court restraining order to keep the man away.

A picture emerging Wednesday following the June 29 slayings of Phoukeo Dej-Oudom, the children ages 9 to 15, and the suicide of Jason Hagan Dej-Odoum shows the mom feared an attack after filing for divorce weeks earlier.

The divorce filing cited domestic violence.

Hair salon chain manager Taren Olson tells the Las Vegas Sun (http://bit.ly/29kwdLS ) that Phoukeo Dej-Oudom quit work June 18 with a message saying she was hiding from her husband.

Police say Jason Dej-Odoum killed his wife outside a business, then killed their children and himself at home.
