Yes, they did. They had to kick it in because he locked it behind him so he could do further harm and possiblly kill his ex.He also theatened to kill the children when he finished with her. Also, The 3600+ damage that was done was to the items inside the house including the door.He bursted out her car windows among other things... Anything else you want to know?????

if you do it once you WILL do it again i know because i am a survivor of domestic abuse i was lucky enough to get out b4 he killed me but he got pretty close a few times. so there is no excuse for what you did if you really care then get some help but leave her alone because you will always hit on her once you start

Brandi has lost so much in her life because of him and still hes trying to take her life too like losing the people she loves isnt good enough for him he wants her to not have anybody to pertect her including her family so he could do the things that he was wanting to dO.I hope hes not going to get out for a long time if he does it will happen again i dont think that anyone could stop him this time from maybe killing her i hope she will know whats best and do what she is still trying to do whitch is to move on with her life so i hope god is with her through all of this.

Seth, for the record...1st of all Brandi is NOT your wife. True you two were together for seven years but you were not married to each other....nor did you live together during this entire time. When you 'came in' on her with the jack handle, you had been living apart for a while. She had her own place and was staying away from you. She wasn't even answering your text messages in hopes that you would leave her alone.

Brandi has been on her own for over a year now. What you did on the 4th of July was uncalled for. There is no reason why Anyone should torture someone the way you have her and those kids.... just because you can. You do not care for her or the kids and if you ask me (which you didn't) you are getting what you deserve. I know that you have an anger and drug problem but you are also controlling. You like to hide behind your so called 'problems' and blame your actions on the victim, who is my daughter, Brandi.
You are just pure mean and that is the bottom line.
Anyone that has treated someone the way you have should be in prison for a long , long, time. I hope the justice system will do what is 'right' and base the upcoming trial on the evidence. If they do, then you will be gone for a long, long time. Just as I had hoped..... Put that in your 'Meth' pipe and smoke it!!! Comments welcome!!!

Yes, they did.... It was locked behind him. The door was damaged but not to the point that it wouldn't close and lock. The rest of the estomate was probably for the car windows he beat in, the big screen tv he bashed with the tire iron, the microwave and the damage inside the house. This doesn't count the pain and suffering she had to go thru. I think it is a fair estimate. Don't judge unless you have been there and saw what he did like I have.

If you weren't such a coward you would tell who you are grandp. But that is ok, I know. You can't fool me because no one knew that he had threatened to kill her but family. Being his mother, you knew because he told you. They were not "together again" as you have previously stated. They have a child together and the reason he was around Brandi was because of 'supervised' visitation. In other words, he could see his child in the presence of a supervisor. How do I know! One of the supervisors was me and the other one was his sister????? That's another story.
As far as who cares... I care, the family cares, her friends care and anyone who has been there and that has a heart cares.
I guess that is why you don't care grandp... you have no heart... because you are upholding the way he does and you never once asked about your grandaughter's feelings.
This just shows how cold and callous you can be... but then again... who cares??????

It's the same old sick story over and over again, men have to beat up on women to feel big and feed their egos...yea, any of you men out there that do that are really BIG MEN in my eyes and have so very much to be proud of~ BS! If a man will hit a woman out of anger once, he'll do it again and again...which makes him a genuine COWARD...because he knows better than to do anything like that to a man that will kick his azz. The problem is that it escalates to the point where is no limit as to what they will do to women. Ladies, if a man even raises his hand out of anger towards you...that is definitely the time to push the EJECT button, and then don't keep rewinding to the past or you'll let them ruin your future. It NEVER gets any better, it only gets worse by the day, and it's a travesty for children to see this because they'll grow up thinking that is the norm and end up with spouses just like that. When you are dating someone that is the VERY BEST that they'll ever be, and the very best that you will ever see out of them, because they are trying to win you over and impress you. If you argue all the time or see red flags when you are just dating, you'd better kick them to the curb because you're in for nothing but alot of hurt in your heart and alot of physical pain as well. After you marry them, they aren't trying to impress you and be their very best because they already have you and men like that think of you only as their "property" so they do as they please. If they have a bad day at work, when they get home it's all your fault so they are going to beat on you until they feel better. No matter what, it's ALWAYS YOUR FAULT, not his. They don't love you, beatings and threats are not love, they want to "control" you because they feel they own you. Most of the time, they cause problems so that your friends never come over and try to keep you away from your family so you can't tell them what is happening... they love to keep you in a state of isolation, for one reason they are jealous of ANYONE at all that you truly care about...so then you feel you have no choice but to stay because then you will have no one to turn to for help...IF they haven't already told you that if you tell anyone, they'll kill you and your children...that's even more effective when they tell you that they will do that if you ever try to leave. The majority of the time, unless they are completely out of control, they only leaves marks and bruises where no one else can see them and when you're around someone else... they act like they are obsessedly in love with you and sugar won't melt in their mouths. I'm sorry, but I want to warn each and every lady that I can and feel like I might could save one life if the right woman reads this...whether they are already married or if they are just dating a man like this. If they will hit you one time and you let them get away with it, you will find that you've turned into a punching bag before you realize it. I'll keep all you women in my prayers and remember one thing: IT IS NEVER WORTH IT!!!

So glad to hear Burt is back behind bars where he belongs. Luckily we got one of those kids out of the situation and he is living in KY now with his Dad and me. Seeing his mom beat nearly to death the first time was too much on him and terrifies him to this day, that image will never leave his head. And the fact that she was able to go back to him is mind blowing to me. I just hope the best things in the world for her little girl who has to call that man daddy. May God wrap his arms of protection around her because nobody else will.

While what your saying is true Shesabre women should not raise their hand to a man also . To many times Women cry foul when they are as big of a abuser as the man . And this post has nothing to do with those mentioned cause I dont know them.

You are a good one to be talking about abuse aren't you? At least it was toward her and he never hurt the kids in the 7 years they were together... You want to run your fat mouth? Which ,by the way, matches another part of your body.... You need to quit abusing my Grandson.... That's all I have to say.... For now!!!!!!!!!!
