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 ( ) 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.
