    WV - Jeffrey Sadler, 25, fatally shot by GF's mom, Huntington, 4 Feb 2008

    The Dreamin' Demon website is talking about this case. I am curious what you all think.....

    Huntington, WV (HNN) – An apparent domestic dispute led to a 51 year-old woman allegedly killing her daughter’s boyfriend at about 9 p.m. at 156 Cedar Street Monday Feb. 4.

    Teresa L. Baker has been charged with first degree murder and held without bond at the Western Regional Jail.

    With her mom facing murder one, Alison Grieco told investigators that Jeffrey Sadler, 29, had been confronted by her mother who had entered the residence. After hearing Baker say, “what are you doing?” Grieco heard three shots and saw her boyfriend fall to the floor.

    Whaaaat?

    There was a previous domestic disturbance call that went out an hour earlier and the police decided not to respond to it? No wonder Mom shot the guy...at least on the surface. Her daughter and the kids were at her house, right, then the boyfriend walked through the door...what would you do?

    believe,

    I believe that the Mom went over to the daughter's house with a gun. After waiting an hour for the police to show.

    What kills me is this:

    "In June, Huntington police charged Sadler with misdemeanor domestic battery. Grieco told police Sadler became irate when she asked him about missing money. He struck her in the face four times and warned "the next time he would rob her blind." Sadler failed to appear in court and a warrant was issued for his arrest in December. The warrant was never executed."

    I cannot imagine how I would react if I had seen the result of somebody punching my daughter in the face 4 times. My gut says I would have done the same. Especially if I could hear them fighting.....that would tear me up. I also believe that the LE has alot of explaining to do.

    How do the cops decide not to respond to a call? Didn't know they had choices about these things!

    It sounds to me that the cops should have responded to the domestic dispute, instead of whatever else they were doing. Writing a traffic ticket as no comparison to this. They knew there were problems with this couple, there was a history there of problems. I can see why this mom sis what she did. God help her though because it sounds to me like this is another example of the good ole boy town and with this man's grandfather being a magistrate well..it doesn't look favorable. I hope some really good defense attorney takes this case pro bono to get the message out there that domestic violence has to stop..that men can't slap wives around anymore..that woman just are not and their families are not going to take it anymore. JMHO

    The department had 10 officers on duty with eight vehicles. The shift included a sergeant and lieutenant. "Holbrook said each officer was involved with arrests or in-progress calls. It forced officers to prioritize calls as they do every day. Such determinations are based upon information the department receives and its available resources."
    http://www.herald-dispatch.com/homepage/x851842276

    If the police can't find more officers to hire or train, i think this woman had every right to shoot him. She sacrificed herself, rather than her daughter who has to be a mother to the children who are now fatherless. It could have turned out worse if the father eventually killed their mother; then they would be without either parent.

    The comments are very interesting is right:

    It seems like there is an extreme shortage of police officers there.
    Also sounds like half the people are either on one side or the other or sexist. They all seem to be concerned with the lack of officers and lack of response at all when calling 911 or for help.

    It didn't have to happen

    This all could have been avoided if Allison would have shown some respect for herself and cut ties with him when he abused her the first time. If any man ever hit me - he certainly wouldn't be welcome in my home. And God forbide he was the father of my children - he would never have visitation alone! The only positive about this is that the children will not grow up with an abuser as a role model.

    I am confused about Allison and Jeff's relationship - one paper says boyfriend but there is a comment from "Jeff's fiance" posted at the one link?

    I appears that they had a relationship at one time, they have 2 children together. I would guess that they have broken up since then and Jeff has another relationship. I read where he would come and go from Alison's house. She may have kicked him to the curb after the June attack and he would come around for visits with his kids (and who knows what else).

    More will come out, I am sure.

    Wouldn't this be considered self defense?

    Mom took the gun and went to the daughter's house and confronted the victim there.

    No self-defense, but a really good attorney could argue that she was protecting her child and grandchildren.

    She desperately needs a GOOD attorney.
