They’re not worth the paper they’re written on: New York Woman Shot Dead by Husband She Had Court Order of Protection Against.
CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. —
A man accused of shooting his wife dead in their bagel shop was ordered to give up guns six months earlier, a prosecutor said.
The victim, Ann Anderson, obtained a court order of protection in November against her estranged husband, 66-year-old Robert Anderson. The order revoked the husband’s gun license, and he turned in two guns to authorities, prosecutors said in court Saturday.
But Anderson apparently had or got another gun, and he used it to shoot his 39-year-old wife in the head five times early Friday morning at Super Bagel in Huntington, said Denise Merrifield, an assistant district attorney for Suffolk County.
Police later found parts of the dismantled gun in two separate sewers, Merrifield said.
