    Susan, it took them 4 long years but they final gathered enough evidence to arrest your ex-husband Marty for your murder. What he did was unthinkable. I know this is a long process and nowhere near the end, but maybe now your family can start the healing process and get closure. Your parents are doing the best they can for your children. The suicide of your brother in December has been really difficult for them. And now they will need the strength to relive what happened to you. You are still thought of every day. Justice will win and I hope other women can learn just how serious domestic violence is. It really can happen to anyone. Even when you think you have broken free and moved on. I love and miss you Susie.

    My sincerest thanks to you both. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that I would have two murder trials of two friends from two different communities going on at the same time. I know how difficult they will be, but I also know that closure will not be complete until all is said and done. Those friends and families left behind will need so much support in the coming months and possibly years as these types of trials can be neverending with the appeals process.

    Not guilty. In both cases the plea is not guilty. In Susan's case, her extra has always denied it. in Sherry's, one if the rwo menu confessed giving details of the kidnapping and subsequent murder. WTF!!! You admit it, tell how, yet you are not guilty? There are no words to express how I feel right now. Own up to your actions. Take responsibility for your choices. Spare her friends and family the grief. Let use lay her to rest. Please.

    I'm sorry. My sister was a victim of domestic violence, then stalking and vandalism after the divorce. Law enforcement didn't seem concerned enough to pursue the matter until he made a phone call threatening to kill a cop. Then there was some action and what little time he spent was for that.

    Gentle...I think the laws an ass!
    I'm s sorry for you and the friends you lost
    I too don't understand how the guilty have more rights than the innocent victims
    my daughter had to flee her violent partner and he won't let go..always a worry. *hug*
