Flippo told police she would file for a victim protective order against Nichols and that she wanted to document what was going on if things started escalating. No victim protective order was sought by Flippo in 2012, according to court records.

She received an emergency temporary protective order against Nichols with Midwest City police in February 2005, according to court documents.

Nichols served time for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, domestic abuse and possession of a controlled and dangerous substance (marijuana) for incidents in 2005, according to the state Corrections Department website.

According to a criminal filing, Nichols held her at knife point for four hours and punched and kicked her in the head, face, ears and body in July 2005.

The document also stated Nichols heated a knife and burned Flippo on her arm and leg; struck her with a metal broom handle on her buttocks, back and legs and poked her with a hot clothes hanger.
