Yet another coalburner meets a cartoonishly violent fate.
I mean, attacking her with a brick and then repeatedly running her over with a car?
This is something out of Resident Evil 7!
Advocates are speaking out after a deadly domestic violence incident in an Orange Mound neighborhood.
Witnesses say their neighbor Amanda Petrowski was beat in the head and run over by a car.
The father of her children, Santrez Traylor, is now in custody for the crime. He faces charges of second-degree murder and two counts of aggravated assault.
“This is a nice, quiet neighborhood and I wouldn’t have expected something like this to happen so close to me,” said neighbor Jay Smoot.
Witnesses said Traylor beat the mother of his children over the head with a rock or brick repeatedly in front of her house. Then ran her over with a car several times.
The mother of two, 31-year-old Amanda Petrowski, was pronounced dead on scene.
“I was shocked. I got real emotional,” said Deborah Robinson.
Deborah Robinson’s a domestic violence survivor.
She wasn’t surprised to hear Traylor had a lengthy history of abusing Petrowski.
