"Teri Lee feared her ex-boyfriend would kill her. After he was arrested in July and charged with attacking her with two butcher knives, she predicted it.
"Ms. Lee stated she was afraid for her life and was very afraid that the defendant would make bail and come to her house and kill her," an investigator reported in July.That was two months ago, before Friday morning when, police say, Steven Van Keuren broke into Lee's Washington County home and killed her and a friend. Police shot and wounded him. Lee's four children, ranging in age from 6 to 12, were home at the time of the shooting about 4:30 a.m., but there are no indications that the suspect went after them."
