Wife had order of protection against husband prior to murder-suicide

"I can't imagine anything worse than having your dad kill your mom and then kill himself," says Chisago County Chief Deputy Bob Shoemaker.

Court documents filed in Chisago County detail the couple's troubled marriage. In June, police were called to the Ouellette's home for an attempted suicide.

In her own words, Candice tells the court that Doug locked himself in the pole barn with guns, held a revolver to his head and threatened to kill himself.

At that time Candice received an order for protection, an order authorities say was later terminated by the agreement both she and her husband.

But at the end of June, Candice filed for divorce, with a no contact provision.
