    TN - Crystal Ostrum, 39, killed, 2 injured in Soddy-Daisy shooting, 29 June 2014

    The beating from her boyfriend in November was so violent that Crystal Perry Ostrum threw herself from a moving vehicle rather than endure more of it. Now her alleged abuser is her alleged killer.

    Jeremy Scott Richie, 39, was scheduled for a July criminal court appearance on assault charges stemming from a Nov. 23 incident in north Hamilton County in which Ostrum suffered serious injuries.

    Now, he is also charged with criminal homicide in a Sunday morning shooting that killed Ostrum, 39, and injured two others at a Soddy-Daisy trailer park.

    Crystal Ostrum was one of the nicest people in their community, and while it's tragic for them to lose her, the bigger loss is to her 9-year-old son who witnessed this horrific event.

    Crystal’s aunt Renee Setter couldn’t imagine what’s going through his head.

    "That is the last thing that that child saw of his mother was her running trying to run for her life and fall down and die,” said Setter.

    Ritchie’s history dates back to the early 90s and includes charges of aggravated burglary and aggravated assault.

    In November, police charged Ritchie with assaulting Ostrum (then Perry) while they were dating. The arrest report states he slammed her head into the dashboard and center console as he was driving her home. She had to jump out and run for help. The beating was so bad, police made note of bruises and missing teeth. A judge ordered him in February to have no contact with Perry. He was scheduled to be in criminal court this July to answer to those charges.

    BTW, It was NOT the husband who shot her, it was a psycho ex-boyfriend.

    She did leave and married someone else. Guess this POS didn't care for that.

    Why, oh why, wasn't he still locked up from the last assault?

    Newlywed killed: Threatening text preceded fatal Soddy-Daisy shooting, mom says

    A Soddy-Daisy woman’s ex-boyfriend had threatened to hurt her.

    But nobody believed him.

    He had never violated the restraining order that Crystal Perry Ostrum took out on him until Sunday morning, when he allegedly fired more than a dozen bullets into her home at the Mimosa Trailer Park on Dayton Pike.

    Ostrum, 39, was killed. Her bridegroom and his son were injured.

    “If they say they’re going to hurt you and they keep harassing you, they will,” said Vickie Penny, Ostrum’s mother.

    This is a case of domestic violence, she said.

    Ostrum is among several Hamilton County women whose deaths have been linked to domestic violence in the past two months.

    July 2016:

    http://www.timesfreepress.com/news/l...ewly-m/376116/

    Prosecutor Lance Pope said Ritchie will serve 30 years for second-degree murder...

    Ritchie also pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and took a 15-year sentence that will run at the same time as the 30-year term.

    Pope said the state would drop other charges including attempted first-degree murder, reckless endangerment, aggravated domestic assault and public intoxication. Those stem from him allegedly smashing Ostrum's head into a car dashboard in November 2013, the impact so hard it caused bleeding on the brain, archives show.
