    It’s sad that a murdered man can’t tell of the years of torture and abuse he received at the hand of his murderer. No one was allowed to speak for him,NO ONE. The jury was only allowed to hear her side. Just because a woman says she was hit, doesn’t mean it’s true . It’s so disrespectful to those people who are truly abused. It’s a mockery.

    I look at it like this……whoever was being mistreated did not have to go back for more. Case closed.
