DANVILLE, Ala. (AP) — Court documents show the suspect wanted in a triple slaying in Alabama had filed for divorce from one of the victims.

Police say 58-year-old Carson Peters is accused of capital murder in the deaths of 54-year-old Teresa Peters and two others on Sunday in Morgan County. News outlets report court documents show Carson Peters had filed for divorce in January.

A filing from Teresa Peters three days before the shooting deaths showed she asked the judge to hold Carson Peters in contempt for allegedly locking some of her belongings in a shed.

Carson Peters had not been arrested as of Tuesday morning.
