Lacy Kelley, was stabbed in front of her 2 and 4-year-old children following a domestic dispute, according to columbiadailyherald.com.
Accused of the homicide is Darrnell Wiggins, a black male.
Understandably, the victim's family expressed concern over domestic violence. That usually translates into males attacking women. No concern was noted regarding black-on-white violence.
Kelley was a victim of domestic abuse at the hands of her estranged boyfriend, Darrnell Wiggins, whom she had an order of protection against. Wiggins allegedly beat and stabbed her to death in front of her 2 and 4-year old children last Thursday night.
Wiggins, 22, of Columbia, was also harmed during the incident and was later treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. He was booked into the Maury County Jail on Saturday, where he remains without a bond on charges of criminal homicide, three counts of especially aggravated kidnapping and aggravated assault.
The two children were not harmed and have been staying with family members.
“Lacey was young and beautiful … and could come in and smile and her eyes would light up a dark room,” Kelley’s aunt, Sunni Kelley, told WKRN-News Channel 2. “We never would have thought this would have happened. She was beaten and then stabbed multiple times. This is their last memories of their mom, watching this stuff happen to her, and I just can’t imagine.”
Kelley’s family hopes that sharing her story will bring to light the seriousness of domestic violence and will prevent others from becoming victims.
