How ironic and sad!This story just shows that it can happen to ANYONE…even someone who has been helping DV victims!I hope that boyfriend gets the death sentence!

Very, very sad situation indeed. It can happen to anyone and that shame we feel! It is even more difficult for one who helps victims of DV to come out and admit what they are going through! My heart aches!
