SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Northern Utah authorities say a man accused of killing four children and two adults in a Houston suburb had previous run-ins with Utah police.

The Cache County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday in a news release that 33-year-old Ronald Lee Haskell was booked in June 2008 on suspicion of simple assault and domestic violence in presence of a child.

Utah online court records show Haskell pleaded guilty to assault and not guilty to the domestic violence charge. Both were dismissed the next year.

Haskell has also had encounters with police in Logan, Utah, where he lived. In June 2013, police served Haskell with a protective order requested by his wife.

Court records show a judge approved a divorce between Haskell and his wife in February..
