Update: Husband kills wife

There was a history of domestic violence and abuse between Amy Ross, 43, and her estranged husband long before he went to her sister's home Wednesday and kicked in the door before killing her.

Randy Ross chased his estranged wife, who was with her niece and sister, to an upstairs room, where he shot her once, killing her, Ottawa County sheriff's deputies said.

Randy Ross then put the gun to his own head, shooting himself twice. He survived the suicide attempt, however, and was outside the home when deputies arrived. A medical helicopter flew Randy Ross to a Toledo hospital, where he is currently being treated. 

Amy Ross had recently moved from Fremont to her sister's home on Leutz Road just outside Oak Harbor.

So,men are typically weaker AND more materialistic than women?? Its no wonder I am so close to being gay.

Ahhh ~ its the fault of the gun and not enough laws. If I remember correctly, Randleman had a record of mental issues as well as felonies. He was not allowed by law to possess, buy or be around guns..period.....till one loaded itself up, ran across the street and insisted on being in his pocket so IT could shoot a police officer.
Stop the blame game and start facing the music. There was an obvious problem as there was already a pattern of domestic issues between the 2. No one took it seriously enough and now a woman is dead and we get to support the individual who shot her.

Women, don't go back to men who abuse you.

if she had a gun, she could have protected herself and shot him first ! with all the threats he made to her, she should have been armed. maybe he would have thought twice about showing up at her sisters house.

This guy was a piece of work. Had I been that cop, I would have taken my time calling for first aide for him. Then I would have given the helicopter the wrong directions on how to get there, told them to take their time and stood on his wounds or tried to help them along to bleed a little more! Why save the scum bag? Sorry, he isn't worth it. She just wanted to be free of him. So she dies and he lives????? He couldn't even die right? What a loser. Well, if he lives he can stand trial. Maybe he will get the death penalty. One can only hope. That poor little girl of theirs lost her mommy. She is the real victim here.

You would have taken your time calling for first aid and given the helicopter wrong directions while standing on his wound? I hope you're 13 years old, because I can't imagine any adult writing something like that.
Additionally, everybody involved in this is a "real" victim and will sadly have a long and painful road ahead of them.
And they did not have children together(no little girl lost her mommy), I'm not quite sure where that imaginary "fact" came from.

My family dealt with the murder of a family member a few years ago. Trust me when I say that you cannot begin to imagine how you will feel/react when something like this touches you so closely. I hope none of you will ever know that feeling, but if you did I know many of you would have rethought the comments that you posted here. When a tragedy like this happens, compassion, sympathy and kindness are what the families involved need. Not cynicism and hate.

Evidently any punishment that was doled out for domestic violence in this case had no deterrence. How each offender acts varies greatly. Arrests, felony records, and restraining orders may not stop the perpetrator. In those cases where violence is still a threat, the victim, male or female, must arm themselves. They must also be able to shoot the criminal when the need arises. If they can't, then a firearm isn't necessary, but a friend or family with a firearm must be with the victim at all times. Usually, when the criminal knows they will go up against a firearm, the threat goes away. They won't go for a fair fight. Let them know you are packing.
