RICHMOND (WRIC) - After a fatal shooting that occurred in the city's East End, court documents reveal that the victim filed a protective order shortly before her death.
26-year-old Sheena Green was shot and killed early on Dec. 29. Her body was found on the Richmond-Henrico Turnpike the same day. The murder led to a stand-off between police and the father of Green's children at his home in Henrico.
8News reporter Josh Landon spent the day pulling court documents from Henrico County and the City of Richmond.
Sheena Green filed a protective order against her children's father, but it was denied. She wrote how her children's father, Corenzo Hill, had been abusive by putting his hands on her, and saying he was going to kill her on more than one occasion.
The protective order was denied back on December 23 because Green failed to show up for the court hearing, only for her to be killed six days later.
According to the search warrant, investigators found several items inside the house on Conway Street where the suspect lived. Items found included ammo and narcotics.
The victim's funeral is planned for Friday.
"I just want to see us all pull through this in a positive way," said Sheena's brother Thomas Green on Sunday. "That's all I want."
Corenzo Hill's has a criminal record that includes convictions for trespassing and drunk in public.
Hill and Green had two children together - a 7-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl.
Corenzo Hill is being held at the Richmond City Jail. His next court date is scheduled for January 13.
