Marie H. Heu, 34
Marie's murder has left her 3 young Daughters to grow up without their Mother in their lives
As office manager of the St Paul Police Dept’s homicide unit, Marie had seen enough domestic abuse cases turn into homicides to know that she needed help when her marriage began to unravel.
But despite obtaining an order for protection and getting rides home from the cops she worked with, Heu was found fatally shot in the Eagan home she shared with her 3 daughters.
A family friend found her body about 1 am and it appeared she was alone at home at the time of the killing. She had been shot in the abdomen and the chest.
Fu Joseph Heu, who was estranged from Marie, is being held and has been charged with first degree murder.
