He got what he deserved.... He's was an abuser and in the end became the victim. I hope his girlfriend has already served her time with the beatings he gave her.

Hartland, N.Y.-- A Rochester area native was killed on Christmas Day near Buffalo.

Niagara County Sheriff's Deputies said Randy Whitney, 38, was stabbed to death by his girlfriend. It happened around 1am Friday in the Town of Hartland.

Gwendolyn Garcia is charged with murder. She was arraigned and is being held in jail without bail.

I hope she can prove self defense and gets off! Guys that physically abuse females don't even deserve to be buried, just take them out behind the barn and toss them in a tank of LYE.. Good riddance to bad rubbish.. Lets hope he didn't father any offspring that will grow up and become HIM either!!

Evidently she has a quite a long wrap sheet and why doesn't she even have custody of her own children? A drug using alcoholic with many priors- yeah she's a real victim.

"Defense attorney Michael W. McNelis has said Whitney had a history of domestic violence against Garcia. Friday, he said the prosecution had turned over Whitney's police history."

That girl had a whole life time of abuse. She is a sad tiny thing. She always gravitated towards abuse. I don't know this man who she stabbed but I'm sorry this happened. People out there need help man. This is a terribly sad story. And if that one comment above is from her little sister it wouldnt surprise me. Her family always shit on her

I am glad she only got short time, she deserves to regain control of her life again.. and that animal randy whitney isn't around to mess things up either! here is the upgraded story :
Lockport, NY (WBEN)-- A woman who admitted to stabbing her boyfriend to death in the Town of Hartland home that they shared has been sentenced to jail time.
A Niagara County Court judge has ordered Gwendolyn Garcia, 32, to spend the next one-and-a-third to four years in state prison.
Garcia tearfully pleaded for mercy at her sentencing hearing Wednesday, telling the judge she wants to start "repairing" her life.
Garcia agreed to plead guilty to one count of criminally negligent homicide on August 4. She had originally been facing a more serious charge of first-degree manslaughter. As part of the plea deal, she admitted to stabbing her boyfriend, 38-year-old Randy Whitney, in the chest last Christmas Day. Garcia claimed she did it to protect herself, because Whitney was abusive and she was afraid for her life.
Garcia's defense attorney, Michael McNelis, told reporters outside the court room that he could have proven his client was a victim of domestic violence, had the case gone to trial.

i knew him personally and worked with him and spent time with him and her and honestly she was the CRAZY ONE!!! I hope she gets the time that she deserves, FOREVER!!! Cannot believe people would post something like this, what if it was your brother, father,son that was Randy. HE was always a nice great understanding person to me and I dont feel anyone should talk like this about anothers family member. I pray for his family everyday and hope they are doing well.

I know this comes way to late and i hope anyone who reads this will truelly understand Randy was insane. That is not an exageration but the truth. He was heavily medicated and drank large quantities of alcohol on top of that. He met and married his wife while spending 6 monthes in rochester generals psyc ward. While living at chili hieghts i watch him drink an entire 12 pack of beer behind the dumpster on his bike rip his own backpack and bunch himself numerous times in the face until he was bruised and bloody and then he told me he was jumped by "black kids" and they beat him up and stole the beer. I actually paid money to bail him out of jail for stealing gas and when i came back to the apartment he attackef me with his broad sword. He even got pulled over for speeding in my car one night going to see his parents and guess what he didn't have a liscence so he gave the cop my expired liscence he stole from me i found this out 2 years later when i got pulled over for driving with out a liscence due to failed court apearences and outstanding fines. I do not wish to say he was evil but he was seriously troubled mentally and emotionally. Gwen was a victim of getting lost in his made up world and being led a stray down a path of deciete and lies. How that night played out had she only hit him with the side of her hand and not gotten a "butter knife" in his cheast she might be the one not alive today instead. Do not defend the ignorant or the hateful in this matter just look at it for what it is. A climax to a series of bad life choices and events. Nobody ever wants bad things to happen but that is the world that we live in.

I'm gonna say what I have to based on my upbringing in a home where my mother was beat and you can say " you didn't know my brother/son" but I do know MEN WHO BEAT WOMAN ARE NOTHING BUT COWARDS AND THERES ONLY ONE PLACE FOR THEM. I'm 6'4 and 260 lbs and not only was I in a abusive home but also bullied until I got my size then the bully/woman beater/coward/ scum didn't want to stand up to a real man. I have no remorse for men that use their size and muscle to take advantage of another human being regardless of the situation. YES I didn't make all the right choices in life but now I'm 30 years old with a great job and I take care of all my children and raise them with good morals and values which obviously were not instilled in this man. Our judicial system has come a long way and for her to only get the minimum they must have found some flaws in this case" HE BEAT HER" enough for them to have the track record to prove she was abused. For those of you who condone this type of behavior please don't pass your thoughts and morals and values onto your children so we don't have to hear or read about people who abuse/bully and take advantage of other human beings!
