A Knox County woman has filed an order of protection against a man accused of killing his former girlfriend.
Shawn Smoot is charged with murder in the death of Brooke Morris. She was Smoot's former girlfriend and employee. He is out on bond.
The woman filed an order of protection against him Monday, after she says he kept showing up and trying to talk to her while she was at a hair salon. In court documents, she says she tried to break all contact with Smoot after he was charged with Morris' murder, but he started showing up at the salon this summer.
A judge granted the woman's request.
