16:50, February 28, 2012

BEIJING, Feb. 28 (Xinhuanet) -- Court records show that the parents of the teen suspect of the high school shooting in Ohio both faced charges of violence in the past, according to media reports.

The boy named T.J. Lane opened fire on Monday in the cafeteria of Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, killing one student and injuring four others.

The father of the suspect had been arrested many times for violent crimes against women in his life, including Lane's mother, Geauga County court records show.

Police or courts warned the father Thomas Lane Jr. to stay away from the boy and his mother more than once.

The father was known to county authorities because of a series of arrests for abusing women he had children with.

Between 1995 and 1997 the boy's father and mother, Sara A. Nolan, were each charged with domestic violence against each other.
