GRESHAM, Ore. — A woman fatally shot this weekend at her Gresham apartment had filed for divorce and obtained a restraining order against the man now accused of killing her.

The Oregonian reports that court records in Clackamas County show 27-year-old Jessie Doyle Cavett filed for the order in August.

It was granted, and it said that 36-year-old Joshua Cavett wasn’t supposed to have parenting time.

Police say the man shot his estranged wife Saturday and abducted their 2-year-old daughter, Paige.

That set off an Amber alert. He was arrested later that day in Gresham, and the child was found safe.

Police are looking for a possible witness to the shooting, 28-year-old Keshia Moritz.

Authorities said Monday that Jessie Doyle Cavett had died as a result of the shooting.
