SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Northern Utah authorities say a man accused of killing four children and two adults in a Houston suburb had previous run-ins with Utah police.
The Cache County Sheriff's Office said Thursday in a news release that 33-year-old Ronald Lee Haskell was booked into jail in June 2008 on suspicion of simple assault and child abuse or neglect.
Utah online court records don't show records of Haskell being charged with those crimes.
Haskell has also had encounters with police in Logan, Utah, where he lived. In June 2013, police served Haskell with a protective order requested by his wife.
Court records show a judge approved a divorce between Haskell and his wife in February. The judge granted joint custody of the couple's four children with the wife getting primary custody.
