Monica Murrah had filed for a restraining order against Michael Murrah, after he allegedly verbally and physically abused her. In her restraining order request, she wrote that “”I am in fear for my life and in imminent danger of my husband due to threats and the incidents that have led me to flee from our home.”
A long-term restraining order was denied despite Monica Murrah’s claims.
