Family of standoff victim to seek custody of son

DES MOINES (KWWL) - Family members of a Des Moines woman who was allegedly killed by her estranged husband during a standoff say they intend to seek custody of her infant son. They also say they haven't ruled out filing a lawsuit against the state for failing to confiscate the husband's firearms.  Tereseann Moore, who served in the Iowa National Guard, including three tours of duty in the Middle East, was shot and killed on Nov. 11.  Moore's family said in a statement Friday they will seek custody of her 8-month-old son, Levi.  Court records show Moore's estranged husband, Randall Moore, has a history of domestic violence. He was ordered to turn over all of his guns to authorities on Oct. 26, but officials said that did not happen.
