    From what I know, there was only one police report with her claiming domestic violence.
    That whole case had serious over kill. To me it speaks of jealously and having anger issues, then him beating her. IMO, he found someone else, she found out he may have cheated, so she is of the mind "If I cannot have him, then nobody can".

  • Yeah, she tried for self defense, but it sounded like she went way beyond that. Makes you wonder what he had put her through.

  • Like you OP, today was the first I'd heard about her. And even then I didn't pay attention to what she was on trial for.
