VISALIA, Calif. (AP) - Court records show a slain Tulare County police officer and his ex-wife had a contentious relationship and often fought over custody of their two-year-old son.

Investigators say 23-year-old Erika Sandoval is the sole suspect in the shooting death of Exeter police officer Daniel Green. She is being held without bail and could face a murder charge.

The Fresno Bee cites court documents (https://bit.ly/1KIvDmm) that show the two got into disputes about child custody, which they shared under a court order. At times, the records show, they exchanged numerous accusatory text messages.

The 31-year-old Green was found dead Friday at his home in Goshen.

The couple divorced about two years ago. The boy has been placed in the care of relatives.
