Boyfriend threatened woman, 2 sons, dog
she had shot Hysinger and that the gun was in her pocket.
The dispute started at the home of one of her sons, where Hysinger threatened to kill everyone inside if she refused to come with him, Florey said he told the grand jury.
Hysinger threatened several times to kill her, her dog and two sons, Florey said.
He later brandished a gun, shot her black Labrador in the head and put the gun to Moffett’s head, pulling the trigger, the attorney said.
When the weapon jammed, he took out the bullet and made her put it in her mouth, he said.
Moffett was eventually able to reach for the gun and shot him with the same bullet intended for her, Florey said.
But it was not until a few days later that he and Moffett visited investiga- tors’ offices to follow up. “She had thought that her dog was dead and the deceased was in the hospital,” the attorney said. “It was there that she found out he was dead and the dog was alive. She cried and sobbed.”
Moffett is now in a safe house shelter. “It is truly a tragedy for his family as well as mine,” she said in a statement provided by her attorney.
“If there are any women going through a relationship like this, they need to get help.” lature can,” Schenkkan said.
The order sought by Planned Parenthood would last until a Jan. 11 hearing to examine the arguments in detail.
A lawyer for Texas, however, warned Harger that Abbott will appeal if the judge grants a restraining order.
Such orders are intended to preserve the status quo, lawyer Kristofer Monson argued, but the Texas-run program is a new initiative that will begin without Planned Parenthood as a participant.
“You can’t get a temporary restraining order to change your legal status, to get into a program they are currently excluded from,” Monson said.
