A Simi Valley woman, killed by her 29-year-old son over the weekend, had a three-year restraining order against him. The son killed his mother and set the house on fire.

 

SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) — Court records show a Southern California woman who police say was killed by her 29-year-old son over the weekend had been granted a three-year restraining order against him in 2008.

Ventura County court records obtained on Monday show that Sally Ann Carnan filed for a restraining order in July 2008 against her then 24-year-old son Ryan Carnan because of concerns about domestic violence.

Simi Valley police say Carnan, who served in the military, was never arrested but had three mental health-related contacts, most recently in July 2008.

Police say Ryan Carnan shot his mother to death on Saturday, left the home he shared with her on fire, shot at a random passer-by and fled on a tractor along a horse trail.

Police converged and killed him in a shootout. The incident is under investigation.
