    He’s dead, she can claim self defense due to the overwhelming physical, emotional, psychological abuse she endured over so many years. Case closed, dead man can’t talk,

    Your Uncle beat that woman for 20 years and no one in your family did any thing about it. Face it he got what he deserved.

      like he was really gonna listen to the family, who does, and she was my aunt from my mom side, so it hurts both ways,

    women snap for a reason not cause theyre psychotic. beating a woman iis a reason for some one to suffer and die. no one shows respect or sympathy for the victim. so.. case closed, self defense is not murder. were praying for you Tia.
