Annette Sowders did everything she could to get her estranged husband out of her life.
She went to court just last week to maintain a restraining order against him. She called the sheriff's department when he showed up at her home in Oildale.
She even had him arrested last Tuesday for violating the restraining order.
He was released on bail sometime during the week.
And then, in the early hours of Saturday morning, Robert Dale Fuller shot and killed Sowders and her 69-year-old mother Sharon Sue Cannon, deputies say.
