    SC - Cathy Galloway, 46, shot to death, Pendleton, 22 Aug 2005

    Packed and ready to escape an abusive relationship a woman dies. FOX Carolina’s Jamie Guirola reports, her common law husband stands accused of pulling the trigger before she could get away.

    Wearing his green bathrobe investigators haul away Leroy Archie. Archie met Cathy Galloway 18 years ago. Monday, witnesses say, he ended that relationship with three bullets.

    Helen Abrams: “First he walked off the porch and I saw a gun in his hand, I thought he was going to kill himself”.

    On her way to work, Helen Abrams found Cathy lying in the front yard with one bullet already in her body-- Cathy barely alive.

    After saying the “Sinner’s Prayer” Abrams says Archie committed a sin hard to forgive. He aimed his gun at his common-law wife and fired another two shots.

    Helen Abrams: “I heard the gun say ‘pow’ and he shot her again while she was laying on the ground dying”.

    Neighbors know the couple for its rocky relationship. Cathy tried to end it Monday by walking out. She never expected three bullets would end it for her.

    A man accused of murdering his wife sits in jail. The victim’s family hopes the courts don’t let him off the hook again.

    FOX Carolina’s Jamie Guirola reports, the first time the suspect sat in jail was 1987. We’re told that’s when he tried to kill his first wife. The maximum punishment, 20 years in jail. Instead he got a couple years probation.

    Leroy Archie owns a criminal history dedicated to violence. Monday marks arrest number eight. Witnesses say he shot his common-law wife, Cathy Galloway, three times killing her on their front lawn.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    After a 4 day trial, Leroy Archie, age 56, was convicted of murder and the possession of a firearm during the commission of a violent crime by an Anderson County jury. The Honorable Alexander S. Macaulay sentenced Archie to life without the possibility of parole.

    On August 22, 2005, Archie shot and killed Cathy Galloway in the front yard of the home they shared at 119 Scott Circle in Pendleton, SC. Archie and Ms. Galloway were in the process of separating after approximately 18 years of living together. Several witnesses, including a law enforcement officer, testified that they saw Archie with a gun standing above Ms. Galloway as he fired the last of three shots while she was lying on her back.

    Assistant Solicitor Scott McElhannon sought life without parole on Archie based on his 1987 conviction for Assault and Battery with Intent to Kill when he shot his former wife in the arm. Archie had also been previously convicted of stabbing Cathy Galloway in 2002.

    “The jury’s verdict in this case is evidence that domestic violence will not be tolerated in the 10th Circuit.” Solicitor Chrissy Adams.
