Prosecutors say the case was dropped after Sigala's wife refuses to testify.
My understanding on domestic violence is the other party no longer has to agree to sign arrest papers or tesify if there is evidence such as black eye, missing teeth or any kind of physical damage or the home shows there was a fight.
So he most likely has warned/threatened her he would do something bad if she testified.
Let him go work for a chicken farm as APD does not need his type, we have to many rouge cops as it is.

Unfortunately Blunt, most victims of Domestic Violence don't want to testify against their abuser. It isn't so much that they fear them, it is because "I love him". The victim of domestic violence has low self esteem, and no matter how often or badly they are abused, they rarely leave their abuser.

Why should she need to testify? Albuquerque is known for prosecuting when the victim has withdrawn their complaint. Is it the same old story as always as who the parties are that are involved that is the decision in whether to prosecute or not?
