HOLLAND -- Police Chief John Kruithoff this afternoon said there no clear signs that Officer Ken DeKleine, accused of murdering his wife, might be unstable.
Police knew DeKleine was going through a divorce and that Lori DeKleine had a restraining order against him, Kruithoff said, but prosecutors did not find enough evidence to charge him with any violations in two 911 calls she made about him.
The first call involved their meeting at a Memorial Day parade in which their son was a marching band member. The second was in August when Ken DeKleine went to see a pastor at Holland Heights Christian Reformed Church, where Lori DeKleine worked, but he believed she was not there at the time.
"He didn't suppress the fact he was having marital problems," Kruithoff said. "But obviously he suppressed something enough where he committed this act.
"Nobody came to me and said, 'Boy, there is something wrong with Ken,'" he said. "Ken came to work and did his job."

HOLLAND -- As family and friends gather today to bury Lori DeKleine -- allegedly killed by her estranged police officer husband -- parishioners at their church struggled to understand.
"We loved them both so much," said Linda Bylsma, a member of Holland Heights Christian Reformed Church. "We are still in shock."
Today's services for Lori DeKleine will come as 13-year Holland police Officer Ken DeKleine is expected to be arraigned on an open murder charge. He has been in the Ottawa County Jail since his arrest Friday.
Sunday morning worship services at the church focused heavily on the tragedy as a counselor from Pine Rest Christian Mental Health Services spoke to parishioners about their grief.
"We were just focusing on being a (church) family on Sunday," Bylsma said. "It was just a time of sharing."
Ken and Lori DeKleine were in the process of getting a divorce, and he moved out of the home almost a year ago. Lori DeKleine, 43, had a court order requiring her husband to stay a certain distance from the home, although a neighbor said he disobeyed it at least once.
Police were called to the residence, but state criminal records show Ken DeKleine, 44, was never charged with a violation.....
