Texas Shooter Choked His Mom Last Week

Ron Haskell, the man charged with murdering four children and two adults in his extended family, taped his mother to a chair a week earlier, and choked and threatened to kill her for speaking to his ex-wife. He also had a domestic-abuse complaint filed against him in 2008 by his ex-wife, for dragging her by the hair and repeatedly punching her in the head. “He yelled at me and twice placed his hands around my neck trying to choke me and caused me to pass out,” Karla Haskell, 61, said of her son, according to court documents obtained by ABC News. “He told me he was going to kill me, my family and any officer who stops him. He hid my telephones. I was taped up for four hours.”
