Mohammad Youssuf Abdulazeez, the suspect in the shooting of four U.S. Marines in Chattanooga on Thursday morning, grew up in an abusive home, court documents allege.

In a divorce complaint filed in Hamilton County Chancery Court, Rasmia Ibrahim Abdulazeez alleged that Abdulazeez's father, her husband, beat and verbally abused his wife in front of his children.

She also said that her husband sexually assaulted her while the children were in the home.

Rasmia Abdulazeez filed for the divorce in February 2009, though she withdrew the complaint 22 days later.

Mohammad Abdulazeez's father, Youssuf Saed Abdulazeez, is a soil engineering specialist for the Chattanooga Department of Public Works.
