Confessed killer Shane Ragland has had an Emergency Protective Order (EPO) taken out against him by his former girlfriend, who claims Ragland physically abused her and threatened to kill her, according to court documents.

The claims were made by Christie Allen, who took out the EPO in Jefferson County.

Ragland's criminal past is well documented. 

The Frankfort native was convicted of murder and sentenced to 30-years in prison in the 1994 sniper-style shooting death of University of Kentucky football player Trent DiGiuro.

Ragland's conviction was ultimately thrown out in 2002 after it was learned that an FBI analyst had lied during a pre-trial conference.

Ragland later pleaded guilty to second-degree manslaughter and was sentenced to time served plus three days.

In a civil wrongful death lawsuit, Ragland was ordered to pay $63.4 million to DiGiuro's family.

A year ago, in late December 2012, Ragland was in a bad car accident on a Snyder Freeway ramp in Louisville. 

Police said Ragland wasn't wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle, suffering serious injuries.

The EPO against Ragland was taken out December 13, 2013, according to court documents.
