Family says woman accused of killing her husband was abused

Laciana Tinsley (Burlington County Prosecutor)

Laciana Tinsley, of Willingboro, New Jersey, sits in jail, awaiting trial for beating her husband to death with a fire extinguisher. Her family members say she endured abuse and fled to domestic violence shelters several times.

In a news story about the case, domestic violence advocates say that battered women leave their abusers and then return an average of seven times before they finally escape.

Even though Tinsley had never been in trouble, and her family, friends and church members vouched for her character, a judge denied bail.

Accused killer was abuse victim, family says, on Philly.com.

Sociopaths just don’t quit. Back in 2006, Lovefraud profiled Phil Haberman, who claimed to be special forces (a lie), claimed to have suffered war injuries in Iraq (a lie), and convinced the military to pay him money he didn’t deserve (the truth). Over the years, Lovefraud has periodically heard from people who had tangled with Haberman. He frequently created fundraising campaigns for sick or injured dogs that were nothing but scams.
