Judge freezes murdered firefighter’s assets; wife ordered to move out
EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - A judge has frozen all the assets of murdered Evansville firefighter Robert Doerr.
The judge made the ruling at a civil hearing Thursday morning after Doerr family members requested Doerr’s assets be frozen.
Doerr’s wife, Elizabeth Fox-Doerr, is charged with Obstruction of Justice and False Informing in the case.
According to the affidavit, Fox-Doerr erased a call record from her phone prior to calling 911 the night Doerr was shot and killed. When she was first interviewed by investigators, Fox-Doerr failed to tell them about the call, police say.
The affidavit says investigators were able to find out about the call by checking with the phone company.
In addition to freezing Doerr’s assets, the judge ordered Fox-Doerr to move out of Doerr’s home within a month. She will also only be allowed to take possessions from the home that are “strictly” hers.
Kate O’Rourke was at the hearing and we’ll have more tonight on 14 News.
