Jean Ndiona said Kristin Florio-Gile said she was being bullied with guns. When he asked for more explanation, he said she told him that her husband was going to kill her.
"She told me very clearly, 'Do you know he's going to kill me?'" recalled Ndiona.
He said he told her to run and find help. That's when she started moving.
"When she came back to move out her stuff, I believe it was a couple days before Saturday. She was escorted by her dad. He was driving behind her, that's how afraid she was," said Ndiona.
The Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office says officers were called to 63rd Street South in Derby on Saturday. There they found three vehicles and the couple dead. Kristin's dad also suffered minor injuries.
Investigators say Randy "Rocky" Gile II shot his wife then killed himself.
Rocky's dad says he knew there was some fighting between the couple but thought his son was going to seek anger management.
"It concerned me. I talked to him about it and what shocked me was that I had talked to him and he was going to go in to get some help...with all this the night before it happened," said Randy Gile.
He said there was another incident the week before the shooting when Rocky was arrested.
"He realized it, that he had some problems. I think what ti really boiled down to it is when they come out and he told me they took his kids," said Randy.
Rocky's dad said he was a good person and would help anyone. He said he was a good mechanic who would often help fix his neighbors' cars.
Neighbors say they were all like family. Now, they're thinking about the six children who were left behind.
"We are really heartbroken, we pray for all of them," said Ndiona.
Friends believe that Kristin's death is a result of domestic violence with her husband Randy Gile.
A GoFundMe account has been set up to raise money for the six Gile children.
