SALT LAKE CITY -- The 18-year-old son of a Salt Lake City woman who died suspiciously last fall says he lives in fear of his father and wants his three younger siblings removed from his father's home.
Pelle Wall's petition filed late last month says he was so afraid while living with his dad, John Brickman Wall, that he slept with an Airsoft gun and a knife.
John Wall and 49-year-old Uta von Schwedler were involved in a bitter custody battle after divorcing in 2006.
Von Schwedler's body was found Sept. 27, in an overflowing bathtub with a knife under her body.
An autopsy didn't rule out the possibility of homicide or suicide.
John Wall's criminal attorney told The Salt Lake Tribune that despite the allegations, no charges have been filed against Wall.
