A 39-year-old man convicted Monday of abusing his wife was reportedly shot dead by the woman Wednesday in southeast Oklahoma City, police said.
About 6:20 a.m., officers responded to 4900 Royal Creek Road, a mobile home park near SE 48 and Sooner Road, where they found the body of Boyd Ray Quisenberry inside a home. Police said Quisenberry had been shot to death.
Investigators interviewed the man’s wife, Christina Maria Mason, 33, who said Quisenberry came into the home, grabbed a knife and threatened her. She told police she grabbed a pistol and shot her husband.
History of abuse
Court records show an Oklahoma County judge granted Mason a protective order against Quisenberry on July 31. In the protective order request, Mason wrote that Quisenberry hit her several times in July and kept her against her will inside her home.
Mason also claimed Quisenberry forced her “to have sex on one occasion but wasn’t violent, just didn’t care that I didn’t want that.”
In June, Quisaenberry pleaded guilty in Oklahoma County District Court to domestic abuse by strangulation and interference with an emergency telephone call. He admitted to placing his hands on Mason’s throat on May 17. He also admitted to breaking a cellphone, preventing an emergency call that day.
In plea paperwork, Quisenberry stated he had been treated in 2017 for schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. He was sentenced to three years probation and 90 days in jail.
According to a court affidavit, Mason told a Del City police officer on May 17, that she and Quisenberry had gotten into an argument and that he slapped her in the face multiple times and punched her left eye before choking her and stating that he was “going to kill her.”
Mason told police she passed out and later attempted to call 911, but Quisenberry grabbed her cellphone and broke it. She told police she ran to a neighbor’s home to call 911 as her husband fled. The officer said she had a bruise on her left eye, “consistent with being struck” and redness and swelling around her neck.
The officer noted that Mason’s voice was “raspy and she could barely talk.”
Most recent plea
On Sept. 17, Oklahoma City police were called to 4900 Royal Creek Road, where Mason said she and Quisenberry had been arguing when he placed his hand on her face and shoved her into a door frame, according to a court affidavit.
On Monday, Quisenberry pleaded guilty in the September domestic abuse case. He was sentenced to probation.
He previously pleaded guilty in domestic abuse cases in 2004 and 2006, court records show.
Mason was not arrested in the shooting. Police said they would report their findings to the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s office, who will determine if she will face charges in the shooting.
