    it was my aunt who was fatally stabbed, she did not deserve this at all, all she wanted was to finally get him out of her life and this is what she got for trying to better her life. Aunt Dorthy was a wonderful women and we are all going to miss her dearly. Even though we are hurting, my heart really goes out to her children who are left behind and have to deal with the brutal death of there mother.

    An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the attack on Thursday. It has been changed. WILX.com appreciates the information brought to our attention.

    It is the lack of motivation from WILX to go out get stories instead of pulling them from press releases.

    well lessons learned don't stab anyone and ya won't get shot....when will people learn this...you attempt to murder someone or if you murder someone...you are not just gonna walk away...my condolences to the families involved and my heart goes out to the officer that had to use force with his weapon to stop the assault.
