Love hurts.

You obviously don't know much about this, do you? Their fighting went both ways, but Dana's always been aggressive - this was the second time she'd stabbed him. Instead of making your catty comments, maybe you should worry about their children, how they're going to grow up with this fact.

Sometimes it's not always the guys fault. I know a woman that will start fights and get in her Husbands face. She pushes him around and won't hush. He got in some trouble when he was younger and is afraid if he leaves he cant see his 2 kids. She gets totally out of control but is the sweetest thing when no one is around. I don'tthink he would have a chance getting the kids even tho she won't work and he has to work 12 hrs a day then come home and watch them, cook andgive them baths and do homework. She gets so out of control I even hit her one day and I have never hit anyone before in my 42 yrs. If it goes to far and something like this happens they always blame the guy.

Just a Tennessean is partially correct. Not only did she stab him in the chest about 18 months ago with a kitchen knife barely missing his heart that time and puncturing his lung leaving him in the hospital for several days but she has stabbed him on the other side with a screw driver. Over the years they have had several abuse reports against one another but she never had to be hospitalized or received stitches... he on the other hand was usually beaten to a bloody pulp stabbed, cut, bruised, and scarred.

The girls were probably part of it but i think part of it is just like any relationship that is full of domestic violence when it's good it's good and it's so good until it goes bad and when it's good you can't remember how bad it can be but then it gets bad and you lose memories of how good it can be. Love is blind.

i do agree that some women can dish it out as well as any man. Sad, but I think sometimes the men get a raw deal in some cases. I've seen it in my own family. Have one brother and his wife who BOTH drink, do drugs and BOTh have hit each other and have been very abusive to each other. Why they ever stay together is beyond me. If she ever kills him she will get away with it because he has hit her, but if the judge would listen he would know she hit him as many times as he hit her. So what should happen to the woman, when she is just as guilty? I don't know this case to much, but sometimes things aren't what they seem. But why do these people stay together? Anyone know the answer?

I don't think that any relationship that's filled with domestic violence can ever be "good." When I was married even when my wife would go crazy and hit or provoke me it never occured to me to harm her. There's no point to it, other than winding up in jail. Better to leave and go to a titty bar.

I heard they had split up and it should have stayed that way, because of the out come. I don't know eithier of them personally but it didn't have to end this way. I left an abusive marriage so can others.

Your family, your school, and society tell you that it's bad to hit other people and that this sort of behavior can land you in jail. They teach you you need to control your temper. In adult counceling they tell you what you did that got you to where you are Unfortunately, outside of substance abuse outside problems ware not addressed. The family violence issue has been distorted and politicized by the gender wars. Believing what gender activists say about family violence is like believing what the tobacco companies say about cancer.
Unfortunately, almost all information available to the public comes in the form of political propaganda from "Men's Rights" groups or
"Women's Rights" groups.

This misunderstanding of the family violence issue is so pervasive that city and county governments, the courts, law enforcement,
prosecutorÌs offices, mental health clinics, and other tax supported agencies are now funding programs based on gender politics rather than
responsible scientific studies.

In other words, you learn from life what you need to do ...but not necessarily how to do it.

They had split up several times in the 10+ years they had been together. Even though the paper reads "Woman arrested for husband's stabbing death" they never remarried after their divorce several years ago, they have just continued to play the on again off again game. It is super sad for the girls to have lost their father and to know that their mother did it.

We live in a civilized society . We, regardless of gender need to held accountible for our actions. These situations only escalate....some one should have seen it coming. On the other hand we want to believe it's all going to become better...starting tommorow.

Just want to say how awful this is going to always be on those two little girls; May God Bless them both. Yes, I two know the family and how sad all this turned out to be for everyone. Yes they were both horrible toward each other and awful things did happen through out the 10 years of them being together. At the time of the murder they were not married and had not been for 3 years, but for some reason they could not stay away from each other. There were many more instances that happend and far too many of them were never reported but for all of those that were maybe the law should have stepped in and taken those little girls out of there. I know about several things that did happen in that home and a whole lot of them were in front of the children and that's a damn shame!!! I know his mother had gotten temporary custody of the children and hope that's where they get to stay. Keep them in your thoughts and send lots of prayers their way, they're going to need them.

Just heard about this I know her alot better than I did Toney and yes they both did things to each other but most of the time she got the worst of it yes he did end up in the hosp. but she also took alot too. Don't get me wrong I am not making excuses for her but I also grew up in an abusive home some people say to just leave it is not that simple. You have no idea until you have been there just wish everyone would remember kids instead of some of the actions of their parents. Does anyone know if she will be out on bail?
