      Just before she was murdered Tuesday night, Karen Cox Smith learned Dallas police were about to arrest the man who had terrorized her for decades, repeatedly threatened to kill her and nearly choked her to death last month.

      They would be too late.

      About 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, police say, Ferdinand Glen Smith stalked his estranged wife in a UT Southwestern parking garage when the 40-year-old executive assistant got off from work. He confronted the mother of their three children and shot her several times in the head and upper body. She died at the scene.

      Ferdinand Smith has worked as a security guard at Faith Family Academy, an Oak Cliff charter school, for several years.

      Superintendent Mollie Savage said security personnel like Smith “are there to keep the bad people away.” That’s why his arrest came as such a surprise to her.

      “This is all very unexpected,” Savage said. “I would not have seen this coming in a million years. We’re all in mourning.”
