I sure hope not she can't say she was defending herself, you are not defending yourself if the victim is walking away! You get what you deserve when you are dumb enough to take an abuser back time after time. Good luck Donna you'll need it!

No, her attorneys have filed a motion to dismiss on the grounds of self-defense. The person that drove him to her house submitted an affidavit stating that he had abused her and he was shot inside the home and he carried him out and he collasped going down the front steps. The state claims that he was shot outside the home! A motion hearing has been scheduled!

Do not get me wrong, I am not saying she is innocent or guilty. I was just posting what was in the Paintsville newspaper. I firmly believe in an eye for an eye, If you kill someone then you should have no life either! Nuff Sed!

I also believe in an eye for an eye.and it is not right for her to get of Scott free when it was her that pulled the trigger she shot him in the BACK AND IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD ON THE PORCH.so either way she is not going to just walk away to live her life hell with that she will pay for what she has done. When you shoot someone in the back it is premeditated murder. her on brother said she told him that she bought a gun in December to kill sparky..this bitch was planning this murder that she carried out now this boy has told the police two different stories so now the family is thinking he is trying to cover his own ass..makes the family wonder if he planned this with her he did drive sparky home to her. makes you wonder .

They only gave her 16 years? Wow. At least she did not get off Scott-free, but still, the sentence seems to not go with the crime she committed.

There are no winners here... Clearly both Donna and Mr. Sparks had a long and pitiful history filled with abuse. Abuse of each other, alcohol, and whatever else was involved. We do know that Mr. Sparks had served time in jail for domestic violence more than once. My thought on this is, "Why would you take someone back who had abused you and Why would you go back to the person who had you put you in jail?" I think there is plenty of blame to throw around...
Who is absolutely not at fault here is the families of both of these people. No doubt both of them made choices their families were not proud of, but they are both still children, parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. I think the list of people hurt because of the choices these two made are very long.
I think it is time for both of these families to heal. Nothing good ever comes from abuse of others or yourself. These two together were an accident waiting to happen. Alcohol and drugs impair good judgment. I do not think Donna had any intent of killing him but alcohol, drugs, tempers, and firearms never create good judgment. Very sad story. Lets hope that others learn from this awful incident.

They actually gave her 14 and a half years.
Painful

Please just stop! This is painful enough on both sides of the family. There is not need to say harsh words. We are not to judge anyway... Maybe some of you people up there in Paintsville need to read your bibles a little more. Do Not Judge, leave that to the Lord! There has been enough sadness and sorrow on both sides. No one needs to be judged in this case!

Didn't she have a restraining order against him because he was frequently beating her? I don't think anyone here can testify that he was any sort of great human being. I've seen him verbally abuse people and threaten them more than once. On all these occasions, he was in a public place messed up on drugs and alcohol, disturbing the peace while I, as well as others, were eating. I'm sure both he and Donna had their problems, but he should have stayed away from her house when the court ordered a restraining order against him.

I'm surprised she got any time at all with his record.

Its sad a man was killed but honestly, if someone came to my home to hurt me or my family, the outcome would likely be the same.

Most of these tradgedies could be prevented of people would stay home and leave others be. If someone has a restraining order against you, stay away and work through the court. If you violate that, they can defend themselves and its a rarety that they do any time for it.

Stay Home, stay alive.
