Woman slain by boyfriend's ex had been harassed, family says
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The family of a Utah woman killed by her boyfriend's ex-wife while decorating a Christmas tree is warning about the devastating consequences of domestic violence that go beyond two people.
Tawny Williams says she was worried for her daughter's safety. Court records show Cook had been charged with domestic violence the month before the slaying.
A lawyer for Cook in that case did not return messages seeking comment, and family members declined to comment.
