Woman Speaks About Domestic Violence

Madison Wade - KRCR News

 

REDDING, Calif. - Tara Bay, who survived being strangled by her boyfriend 12 years ago, spoke in front of a packed room during a strangulation prevention training hosted by One Safe Place and the National Family Justice Center Alliance.

Bay relived her experience and told the crowd how she survived, recanting the process of healing, telling people she leaned on family for support. She said as she walked into the room on Wednesday, she felt an overwhelming sense of joy and support.

"It's very empowering to feel like you have gone through something very traumatic and horrific and to be able to come out the other side of that, as someone who's strong and independent and is now providing help towards people who are trying to be there for other people is incredibly, incredibly powerful," Bay said.

Cameras See More Than Skin Deep
Carolyn Lange - West Central Tribune


WILLMAR –– Like a relationship that looks OK on the outside but is deeply troubled under the surface, the physical bruises of victims of domestic violence may also be difficult to see.

Without evidence of abuse, perpetrators can go uncharged and victims remain at risk.

But a new camera that is able to detect below-the-surface bruises, as well as the presence of bodily fluids, could help law enforcement get evidence for domestic abuse and sexual assault cases.

Calling it “one of the worst I have seen,” a Dane County judge on Wednesday sentenced a town of Madison man to eight years in prison for the rape and strangulation of a woman he had lured to his parents’ home last year under the pretense of renting her a room.

Samuel K. Eneboe, 24, committed a “vicious and aggravated” crime on Sept. 26, 2013, that left the 21-year-old woman with bruises all over her body and obvious ligature marks on her neck, Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan said.

Browning Man Sentenced to Prison In Strangulation Case

Assocaited Press - NBC Montana

 

GREAT FALLS, Mont. - A Browning man has been sentenced to almost three years in federal prison for strangling his girlfriend after becoming upset over what she was wearing.

U.S. District Judge sentenced Jordan James Lamott to 32 months in prison to be followed by three years supervised release during a Tuesday hearing in Great Falls. Lamott was found guilty of strangulation by a jury following a September trial.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says he's the first defendant to be convicted at trial of strangulation since the adoption of a 2013 federal law aimed at reducing violence against women, including American Indians.

Authorities say Lamott became angry after his girlfriend wore a skirt to impress him and he strangled her until she lost consciousness.

The victim survived.

Prosecutors in Northampton and Elsewhere Are Hoping That a New Domestic Violence Charge Serves as a Deterrent

Prosecutors in Northampton and Elsewhere Are Hoping That a New Domestic Violence Charge Serves as a Deterrent
Fred Contrada - MassLive.com


NORTHAMPTON - Prosecutors studying domestic violence crimes have noticed an interesting common denominator-- in lethal instances the aggressor, at some point, often put his or her hands around the neck of the victim.

At an attempt to fight back, the state has created a new domestic violence law. Strangulation/sufffocation charges have been showing up in district courts throughout the Commonwealth. Signed into law in August by Gov. Deval Patrick as part of a domestic violence bill, the felony carries a maximum penalty of five years in state prison.

"It fills a gap," said Jennifer Suhl, an assistant district attorney with the Northwestern District Attorney's Office. "Before, you only had assault and battery or attempted murder, and with attempted murder you have to prove intent to kill."

Pathologist: Guard Died of Asphyxia by Manual Strangulation
By Maunette Loeks - Star Herald


A Scottsbluff pathologist detailed the cause of death and injuries to a Scotts Bluff County Corrections officer.
Dr. Peter Schilke, a forensic pathologist with Western Pathology Consultants, took the stand Tuesday in the case against Dylan Cardeilhac, 16. The Torrington teen is charged with first-degree murder, a Class IA felony, in the death of Amanda Baker, 24.
Schilke examined Baker’s body on Feb. 17, 2014, three days after the woman had been attacked while working at the Scotts Bluff County Detention Center. The woman died on Feb. 16, having never regained consciousness after the attack.
Schilke testified that the woman had petechiae, or broken blood vessels, in the skin of her face and eyelids. The petechiae are a significant finding, he said, in hanging and strangulation cases.
Schilke determined Baker’s cause of death to be asphyxia by manual strangulation. He said that death by manual strangulation can be caused by two factors: the blockage of air getting to the lungs or the blockage of blood to or from the brain. The petechiae are a physical sign of a blockage of blood flow.

Doctor Bill Smock and three nurses make up the unit. They're investigators for the investigators. They gather evidence for police and prosecutors when someone survives a violent crime.
