On Monday, the suspect in the shooting death of a woman at Pensacola Fitness is scheduled to appear in court. Prior to Tuesday’s shooting, Channel 3 obtained court documents detailing the history of conflict and violence in the partnership between Carla Williams and Kennon Farrow.
In March, Williams was awarded a temporary restraining order against him.
According to court documents, Farrow was arrested and charged with strangling Williams in February. She then went to court to obtain a restraining order.
According to court papers, Williams left the relationship for the second time on Christmas Eve of last year due to harassing phone calls and text messages.
Williams’s request for a restraining order was denied.
In February, the couple met at Williams’ home for dinner and a movie; Farrow desired a reconciliation.

Williams filed for and was granted a temporary restraining order in March.
Williams wrote in a court petition that she and Farrow argued after she asked him to leave.
He was on top of me pinning me down he was yelling and screaming at me why don’t you give me one more chance…..
He took his thumb and finger and hooked them on both sides of my throat and squeezed until I started gurgling…..
I asked him to stop because he was hurting me and he said he didn’t care about hurting me.
Williams fled the house, and Farrow pursued her, according to the police report.
Eventually, she was able to return home and lock the doors. Farrow is being held without bond at the Escambia County Jail.
