A Henrico County woman who was fatally wounded Sunday in Richmond had sought a protective order last week against the suspect in her death, claiming he had threatened to kill her.
The woman, Sheena Green, 26, requested a protective order Dec. 23 against Corenzo Laroscoe Hill, the father of her two children, according to court records in Henrico Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
That day, Green wrote in an affidavit for the protective order that Hill kept "putting his hands on me and saying he's going to kill me. This is not the first time this done happened."
But Green's petition for the protective order was dismissed because she failed to appear that day at a preliminary protective order hearing, according to court records.
Green was found about 5:30 a.m. Sunday lying on the ground in a wooded area in the 2700 block of Richmond-Henrico Turnpike in the city's North Side.
She had been shot, run over by a vehicle and left for dead, according to a source familiar with the case.
She was taken to VCU Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
Hill, 30, also of Henrico, surrendered to authorities Sunday night.
Authorities in Henrico and Richmond quickly developed Hill as a suspect and spent much of the day looking for him before he turned himself in about 9:30 p.m. at Richmond police headquarters.
Police officers, including a SWAT team, had served a search warrant earlier at his mother's home in the 3700 block of Conway Street in Henrico.
On Sunday afternoon, authorities searched Green's apartment at Colonial Apartment Homes in the 5500 block of Cardiff Court, according to a resident of the complex who heard police declare that they had a search warrant before they entered the home.
Richmond police Maj. Steve Drew attributed Hill's surrender to community cooperation and hard work by the police.
"Hill knew that he was wanted for these particular crimes," Drew said, alluding to the daylong manhunt.
Authorities charged Hill with abduction, use of a firearm in a felony and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Richmond prosecutors plan to ask a grand jury Jan. 10 to indict Hill on charges of first-degree murder and use of a firearm in a felony.
Hill's criminal record includes convictions in Henrico and Hanover County on charges of grand larceny, driving with a suspended license, assault and battery, possession of marijuana, obstruction of justice, disorderly conduct and trespassing, according to court records.
He was released from the Haynesville Correctional Center in April 2012, according to a state prison official.
Court records show that Hill and Green had two children in common, a 7-year-old boy and a 5-year-old girl. ___
