MOUNT RAINIER — The husband of slain Mount Rainier National Park Ranger Margaret Anderson is leaving the park where he also worked as an enforcement officer.

Eric Anderson and his wife had worked at the park for four years. She was shot to death on Jan. 1 while trying to stop a man who went through a snow chain checkpoint. He later died of drowning and hypothermia in a snowy creek.

Park Superintendent Randy King says Anderson is taking a training position at the fire and aviation management program in Boise, Idaho.

The Olympian reports Anderson has previous experience as a firefighter. He has two daughters, ages 4 and 2.
