“We think restraining orders are a good tool. It doesn't fix everything, but it does let the defendant understand that they are actually stepping into violating laws if they continue to do the actions they were brought in for.”

For months, police say, Sheila Grayson had tried to break off her relationship with Robert Irby, filing multiple complaints that the 44-year-old former boyfriend had been harassing her since they broke up. via GreenvilleOnline.com

Are you implying that Ms. Grayson knew that she had HIV, had unprotected sex with this guy then broke off the relationship...I for one find that hard to believe. I'm not even so sure if this information has any validity whatsoever. Ultimately, if you are involved with someone sexually you are responsible for protecting YOURSELF ....If his life was so terribly bad he should have just killed himself!!! ENOUGH SAID!!!!

The sad fact of this story is that Sheila could have defended herself but BMW sealed her fate when they made it a policy that anyone having a gun in thier vehicle would be FIRED. In South Carolina the law allows law abiding citizens to carry thier loaded gun in thier glove box, center console, or trunk without a Concealed Weapons Permit. Since she was on her way to work that morning BMW made her a sitting duck for this man hell bent on killing her. They took away her ability to LAWFULLY protect herself. This man was able to unload his gun into her car and all she could do was sit in the drivers seat and watch in horror as he pulled his trigger over and over. BMW has tried to sweep this tragedy under the rug all the way to the story of SICKO Greg setting out to give as many people as he could his own death sentence. Funny how our local media is not conecting the dots to this whole story. Shame on them. If any one knows Shelia's family please inform them that they have a HUGE lawsuit against BMW for taking away Sheila's 2nd Amendment Right. They know they are breaking the law because they and about 20 of thier attorneys met with a head NRA memember telling them they are setting themselves up for such a law suit weeks before Sheila,s death!!!!!!!! May all the victims in this tragic event be touched by God. We can only pray for miracles.

Sheila Grayson Did Not Have HIV! She was tested during autopsy and it was Negative! He murdered her because he wanted too! It's a shame that people spread these lies!

Since I moved to SC, I have seen how women are treated like second class citizens with no rights. There is still a law on the books that allows men to take their wife on the courthouse steps on a Sunday afternoon and beat the hell out of them. So hearing that a restraining order was not given when she had tried does not surprise me in the least.

It's a tragic situation. He didn't have to take her life. I thought Robert was dating someone named Joyce. If the rumors of HIV was a factor, was his current girlfriend infected?

Do you have proof? attach the coroner report with this or the autopsy. Robert admitted he found out he was positive.
