DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) – The man suspected in the shooting deaths of two Iowa police officers had been ordered by a judge to move out of his mother’s home just hours earlier.
Court documents show a judge ruled Tuesday that 46-year-old Scott Greene had committed elder abuse against his mother, Patricia Greene, by “hitting and financially exploiting” her. Police suspect Greene in ambush attacks that killed two officers early Wednesday.
The judge ordered Greene to move out of his mother’s home in Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines, before Nov. 6 and to stay away for a year. Greene was told he could go to the home to remove his belongings if accompanied by an officer.
Patricia Greene applied for a restraining order against her son on Oct. 19, days after she was charged with hitting him. The 66-year-old wrote that her son told one of her friends that he would move and not bother her again if she gave him $20,000.
