Houston, Texas

From the Houston Chronicle of February 16, 2004:
Estranged husband killed while entering wife's home

A Spring man was shot and killed by his estranged wife's boyfriend when he tried to enter the woman's apartment in southwest Houston late Saturday, police said.

Police said Mark Anthony Henry, 26, of the 6200 block of Forestgate, was shot once in the face with a shotgun when he broke a window and tried to force his way into the home at the Treehouse Apartments in the 9000 block of Bissonnet.

Henry's wife told police her husband had called earlier Saturday to say he was coming to see her, although she had asked him to stay away. She said they were going through a divorce.

Henry climbed over a patio fence and tried to enter his wife's apartment through a sliding glass door when he was shot, police said.

Henry was transported to Memorial Hermann Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Houston Police Homicide Detective T. Ruland said Henry and his wife had separated but he did not know if she had obtained a restraining order to keep him away.

Investigators, however, said the woman had reported that Henry had harassed her in the past.

The woman's boyfriend, whose name was unavailable, was questioned by police. The incident will go before a grand jury, police said.
