SPOKANE, Wash. - When Rachel Dunham took out a restraining order against her boyfriend, she didn't expect to be marrying him a short time later.
So instead of honeymooning in Mexico, her beau, Rodney Tomsha, sits in the Spokane County Jail, accused of violating the order by getting within two blocks of Dunham.
He tried to persuade a Spokane judge last week to lift the restraining order, but the judge refused.
The couple were married in nearby Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.
