Suspected gunman's wife among those killed in Wisconsin

Zina Haughton, wife of the alleged gunman, was one of the three victims in Sunday's shooting at a Wisconsin salon.

The Waukesha County medical examiner's office released the names Monday of those killed in suburban Milwaukee: Cary Robuck, 35; Maelyn Lind, 38;  and Zina Haughton, 42, of Brown Deer.

Radcliffe Haughton was found dead after he killed the three people, police said.

Four days ago, Zina Haughton took out a restraining order against her husband.

See CNN's coverage of Sunday's shooting. 

A survivor tells CNN affiliate WTMJ-TV that Zina Haughton was a hero - and saved lives.

One person wounded in Sunday's shooting has been released from the hospital, a spokeswoman for Froedtert Hospital announced Monday.

The hospital didn't identify the patient who was among seven shot by Radcliffe Haughton at the Azana Salon and Spa in Brookfield.

Of the three patients remaining in the hospital, all are in satisfactory condition, including one person whose condition was upgraded Monday from critical.

    The restriction order was just the excuse he needed to do what he did...

    Another example that restraining orders do not work.

    this is why you shouldnt wait to file a restraining order. i am sure she had many opportunities in the past, but waited until this guy slashed her tires 4 days prior to this. if the restraining order was in place at that time they could have arrested him and he would be in jail rather than 4 people being dead.

    i agree, restraining orders dont protect you, but if you file them in a more timely manner then when he does act out the police can actually do something.

    also, WI just allowed concealed carry – after filing the restraining order i would have gone to the gun store and bought some real protection.

      If she would gotten the restraining order sooner, what makes you think that he wouldn't have killed her then?

    When a restraining order is granted the judge should remind the victim,and her accused, that she has the right to bear arms and the right to defend herself and her children. Our courts need to give women power to use power, not just a piece of worthless paper.

    It would appear that a restraining order will not stop a bullet.

    I have much experience with domestic abuse cases and it saddens me when it reaches this point. No one deserves to suffer this way. The worst is endured by the children of domestic abuse couples. I have seen the true cause of domestic abuse: a so called 'man' who can't control his anger and a woman who doesn't know when to walk away or stop provoking. It is a myth that men who abuse their partners do it out of a need to 'control'. Case after case shows a chaotic relationship in which both parties contribute to the violence. A man by failing to control his impulses and a woman for provoking a man who is physically stronger than her. It is not right but it is reality.

      Did you know around 40% of domestic abuse victims are men? Kinda blows your theory out of the water.

      Domestic abusers usually are people with an overpowering need to control, and they have a gift for picking psychologically weaker partners (which is why some guys keep letting themselves get beat up by women who are far smaller then they are – psychological power is more important in these cases then physical power). That's why so many abuse victims are killed when they either file a restraining order or attempt to leave – these power-crazed individuals don't like it when their victims attempt to take control of their lives.

      My wife has her Masters in counseling and also has a great deal of experience in domestic violence cases. When it gets to the point of the restraining order, in the majority of cases it is not the woman provoking the man but instead the woman attempting to do anything she can to distance herself from a jealous, irrational partner that will not accept the end of a relationship. When a case gets to this point it has little to do with provocation and everything to do with control.

  10. Point is

    This man had a history of abuse with his wife, mostly verbal. Last year Haughton was involved in a stand-off with police who said it looked like the husband was pointing a gun at his wife. The incident ended peacefully without him being arrested because (get this) the wife wouldn't let the police in to check for the gun and when a police officer failed to appear in court. Although Zina saved some lives by trying to defuse the situation, herself and this office paved the way for Sunday's shooting spree.

    People always ask why women stay with their abusers... this is what often happens when they leave.

      Hmmm, perhaps such women shouldn't get involved with such these types of men in the first place?

      "A Nice Guy" : So it's the victim's fault for being with him? First of all, most of these guys act perfectly nice in the beginning. The woman thinks she's with a good person. Do you fault her for that? How about putting the blame where it belongs: on the person who is doing the abusing!

    Sure hope that restraining order was printed on 'Charmin'. At least it would have one USE.

    Just another example of "ghetto love". Not sure why, but killing seems to be acceptable behavior in certin segments of our population. Until that changes, black on black murders will just continue to be ho-hum news.

      Black on black murder? Do you only look at one picture and made this assumption. For your information, Zina, my friend, is Greek. The other two women are white.
