IT TAKES A DIRTY DOG, NOT FIT TO BE CALLED A MAN, TO SHOOT A WOMAN, OR ANYONE FOR THAT MATTER, IN THE BACK OF THE HEAD. BE A MAN AND FACE THAT PERSON THAT YOU SO CALLOUSLY KILLED. IT SHOWS THAT YOU HAVE NO RIGHT TO BE TREATED LIKE A HUMAN BEING, BUT THE DOG THAT YOU ARE! I CAN ONLY PRAY FOR YOU AND THAT GOD WILL TREAT YOU AS HE SEES FIT. I BELIEVE THAT IF YOU TAKE A LIFE, YOU GIVE UP YOUR OWN LIFE. GOD BLESS THE FAMILY. SQUAW

Have open hearts as this horrid story unfolds. It is very, very sad from both sides. Talk to our Father in prayer and ask that a form of good comes from this. Both of these beloved people suffer/suffered with life's hurts that most of us will only hear of or see in a horror movie. We do need to have insight as how to give continueing help and follow-up care to these people and their families. Perhaps consider volunteer work in your community health department. Consider making it your life's work. With care from our community for these type of problems this precious lady and beloved man endured in their lives, they would both be alive today, and perhaps, being of great help to others having to live through the horror that Michael and Julia faced in their life. We all need people that care and we need to share empathy. Write your government offices for resources needed in our communities. Get involved. Pray for guidence. It is easy to hate but it makes one old. Empathy...

I pray the courts for once this year actually can do something right and gives this man what he deserves. I hope the law gives to him the same mercy that he gave to Julia. It does appear that the police did a good job as they pointed out that this man did murder this woman despite the lies that naturally came forth from the liar and his cowardly mouth.

This murderer has nothing in common with the woman he killed. He only knows phony scams and lies and tops it off with MURDER. I pray that others never become as evil as him.

Write your officials to ask that he receives as good as he gave to Julia! NO MERCY...

This man deserves nothing but death. You don't shoot someone in the back of the head and call it self-defense. Julia was a beautiful, sweet, loving, and caring woman to her 11 yr old daughter, her family, and friends. She and her husband were divorcing and it wasn't final yet. She was finally coming to terms with being a single parent and had started dating again, when this man took her life without regard. I hope he receives the kind of punishment he deserves.
Please pray for Julia's daughter, her family, and friends that knew her to be a christian, someone that gave everything to being a great mom to her little girl! She will be missed terribly by all who knew her and loved her.

How can anyone take someone elses life and than tell such lies as he's telling? I hope the law does it's job and puts him away for life. The bible say's an eye for an eye!!

Sandra, get real. He killed her. What else do we need to know? Can you name one thing that excuses him for this or justifies it? The fact is, he shot her and killed her. Enough said, now fry him until he's done.

Sandra, I do have the facts straight. I don't know what all the bully said and did before he killed her. Now that's a FACT! You can bet it was bad. How do I know this? Because he KILLED her by shooting her in the back of the head with a shotgun while she lay on the floor.

I do pray for Julia's family and friends as they are faced with this horror for the rest of their lives. I also pray for his family as they are trying to face the facts of his actions.
I hope he receives NO MERCY for killing Julia.

I personally know Mike. After the things he has done to my family it is clear that he is a true dirtbag and probably capable of this horrible crime.

he is about as worthless as they come he shot her in cold blood i knew her all her life and she suffered alot at the hands of worthless men at least 2 of them one broke her heart and the other one took her life so which one of them is the better of the two in my opinion they both pulled the trigger because if her husband had been the man he should have been she wouldnt have been with that murderer,maybe she would still be with us now

Michael Ellington and ALL of his family are white trash, scum users, liars and thieves! None of them accept the responsibility of their own actions ever! He loved her so he shot her in the back of the head while she lay face down? What a man! Don't try to make excuses for him. He deserves what he gets and more!

I can say that I was told a completely different story from what is being told in the papers and feel free to correct me if I am wrong. This information that I came across is from a very reliable source. I was told that Julia and Mike had gotten into an argument and she hid his pills from him and he got pissed off at her when she wouldn't tell them where she had hidden them and he went and got a pistol and put it down her throat and pulled the trigger and blew the back of her head off. Now, like I said, I could be totally wrong and some information could have gotten miscontrued but I just wanted to put this out there for everybody else. If it's true then I am glad it's out and if any of it is wrong, then my apologies.

I think the only person that knows the real truth was murdered as the killer is a liar and can never be believed. Are you suggesting someone else was there and witnessed this murder?

Either way the murder occurred Michael Ellington is the lowest type of scum on this earth. Just a pity he was not brave enough to do this to himself instead of her! That is how chicken scum murderers live. They hurt ever innocent person that comes in contact with them. Maybe we the people can do the same to him. We can call it self defense!
