David Meyer, Jr.’s girlfriend, Kristen Leach, said that in more than three years with Meyer, she obtained personal protection orders three times to keep him away.

Carpenter is on trial in Marquette County Circuit Court for the fatal June 2012 shooting of Meyer at a home where the two men lived in Ishpeming.

ABC 10 News Now reporter Mike Hoey is in the courtroom again today.  Tune in for his re-cap of the proceedings tonight at 5:30 p.m.
