It is so easy for people to make comments based off of what they hear on the news. Could it have occurred to anyone that she said he came at her so she could look innocent. She can fix her mouth to say anything to make herself look good because he can't defend for himself....I wonder why not (because he's dead). Derrick was never a violent person and his mother DID NOT raise him to put his hands on a woman. He will leave her before he will hit her. She knew what she was going to say from the start he didn't hit her, so what reason did she have to stab him. If he threatened her as she said in a previous report then she should have called the police. That man was truly loved and she took him from his family now thanks to her dumb actions her kids don't have their father nor their mother. I could care less about the mother because she can't bring back a life that she took. God put him back so that is who should have taken him away. I want to say a lot of nasty things about this woman because nothing hurted me more when I received a phone call saying "Your uncle is dead, he was murdered". This woman took my uncle from me she can't bring him back. Lord knows it hurts to see people comment on a situation when they don't know the victim but going off of what they hear on the news. R.I.P to my loving uncle Derrick who I and many others miss and love dearly.


I'm puzzled as to why this lady was charged. According to Whiteville News Reporter the boyfriend came at with a iron or metal pipe! So was she to allow him to beat her to death!

I wonder if he was "just a

I wonder if he was "just a young boy, bringing a bag of Skittles, to is baby-brother"? Did this harmless, innocent, young boy, jump on her, and bash the back of her head in ? And did she profile him ? Quick someone, call Al Sharpton, Louis Farrahkan, or Jesse Jackson.


Need to ban knives.

Why isn't WWAY calling this "knife violence?"

Where is the consistency in the reporting? If a thug uses *gasp* A GUN then it's automatically reported as "gun violence." If a crazy wife uses a knife it's not "violence" at all, it's merely a "stabbing death."

Does this mean from now on the news hawks at WWAY will describe the shootings by gang thugs as "shooting deaths" instead of "gun violence?"

The terminology and codespeak of the leftists is SO easy to dissect, but they are unabashed in their agit prop.
