    Amber's family said the relationship had been abusive.

    "With her being a victim of domestic violence, she has been for a very long time, we fought really hard to help support her to get away and the only thing I can say is she finally got the kids away from him. It wasn't the way we wanted, but she's finally free," her cousin Amanda Kimbrell said.

    Amber's family said they are working to set up a fundraiser for her funeral expenses and four daughters she left behind.

    Genoa man appears in court, charged with killing wife | Review Times Suspect remains in jail
    [...]

    John Eichner appeared for an arraignment in Ottawa County’s municipal court Wednesday afternoon. He told Judge Louis Wargo III that he wanted extra time to speak with a court-appointed attorney, and the judge pushed back his arraignment to Friday afternoon.

    County prosecutor James VanEerten said John Eichner has a “significant” criminal history that included sex offenses that required him to register as a sex offender.

    Wargo set Eichner’s bond at $1.07 million. After the bond was announced, applause broke out from family and friends gathered in the courtroom as John Eichner was led out by a deputy; the judge waved his hand to discourage the crowd from reacting to the announcement.

    My heart hurts for the children. Over and over we see this....loss of one parent at the hand of the other parent. How does someone ever fully recover from that?

    RIP Amber. I'm hoping that the children get all the love and support they deserve from family members.

    Hometown talks about death of missing Ohio mom of 4 | wtol.com
    Everyone's story about Genoa starts the same: it's a quiet town, a great place to raise kids.

    Some say there's no need to even lock your doors, so learning about the death of Amber Eichner allegedly at the hands of her estranged husband feels unfathomable.

    [...]

    "We're definitely going to rally behind that family. I say that just because of what I've received and know the community is going to do whatever they can to help this family," KD Jr. said.

    [...]

    Genoa Schools Superintendent MF says the district is ready to help the kids if and when they come back to class, and counselors are available for anyone who needs support.
