Along the 1700 block of Laguna Meadows Lane in west Harris County lays a house of unrest. A place where boyfriends hit their girlfriend's kid, and where the kid beats up on his own family members.
That is if you believe Harris County court records for Raymond Salsgiver, 46, and his girlfriend's son, Clifford Haun, 21. And if you do, then it probably won't be shocking to hear that blood was spilled at their home late Tuesday night.
According to the sheriff's office, deputies got a call about an assault at the home and raced over, only to find Salsgiver lying the front yard. He had been stabbed in the chest. An ambulance soon arrived, but there was nothing paramedics could do. Salsgiver was dead.
Turns out, investigators say, that Salgiver and Haun, the eldest son of his live-in girlfriend, had gotten into a fight earlier that night. Authorities say Haun killed Salsgiver with a knife.

Neither of the two has a clean record. In 2006, according to court records, Haun was charged with assaulting a family member. And in 2008, Salsgiver was charged with assault for allegedly hitting Haun. Both charges were later dismissed.
For this latest go-round, Haun has been charged with murder.
