NEW CASTLE —
Police and family said the couple had separated about a week before to the shooting.
Court records indicated Anderson and Harper had obtained PFA orders against each other in weeks prior to the shooting. Temporary orders on both petitions had been granted. A hearing to make them permanent had been scheduled for Nov. 18, which was the day after Anderson died and the day Harper took his own life.
Police said that, believing Harper was stalking Anderson, they had escorted her home, and co-workers had walked with her to her car in the Wal-Mart parking lot on various occasions when they suspected Harper was waiting.
No one was with her the night that she was shot.
