BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — Court documents show fugitive ex-cop Christopher Dorner gathered information on a women's basketball coach and her fiance before he apparently killed them earlier this month.

The Orange County Register reported Thursday that Irvine police believe Dorner researched 28-year-old Monica Quan and her boyfriend 27-year-old Keith Lawrence. The records also say Dorner may have had documents containing information about Quan and her family.

Police tied Dorner to the slayings after reading a manifesto he wrote in which he sought revenge against those he believed ended his law enforcement career. Quan's father represented Dorner during a disciplinary hearing.

Dorner was found dead inside a burned-out cabin earlier this week after a shootout with authorities. He is also suspected of killing two law enforcement officers.
