A widow asked a judge on Monday to allow her to halt the $500/month alimony payments to her ex-husband, Fred Lee, who allegedly killed her late husband, Mike Sidwell, in July. Lee, 59, is currently confined in a Utah County Jail. He’s set to face aggravated murder charges, among others, according to media reports.
According to court documents dated July 3, Lee told police he’d been searching for his ex-wife Joy Sidwell “to kill her” but shot and killed her current husband upon entering the couple’s home. “My grandson called me and said, ‘Call [Mike] and tell him we saw grandpa [Fred] hiding behind the van.’ But it was too late, he had already been shot. It’s been a nightmare,” Sidwell told a news reporter.
Although Sidwell has filed protective orders and stalking complaints against Lee in 2005 and 2007, she says the issue with alimony payments is an obstacle for her in the legal system. “It should be a simple thing. I shouldn’t even have to go to court to do it,” Sidwell said. “They should just see that.”
