Friday night and Christy Grice is running from her own home and is shot in the back. This is not some random act of violence this is a growing trend in America where women are not being protected by the courts and the Judges that took an oath.
Violence Against Women Act is useless until Judges and other court officials are trained……we will never stop fighting for Christy, Kelly, Marie and all the other women that have become a statistic….your voices will never be silenced, that is my promise.

PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (WSAZ) — Scioto County Sheriff Marty Donini has released more information on the shooting deaths of Christy Grice and her ex-husband, Keith “Butch” White, over the weekend.
The sheriff says the case is being investigated as possible murder-suicide.
Donini says Grice was shot in the back, running away from her home on Filmore Lane in Wheelersburg late Friday night.
The sheriff says White was found dead at his home on Route 140 in Wheelersburg at around 11 a.m. Saturday morning.
Donini says White died of a self-inflicted shotgun blast.
Investigators say the couple had been divorced for about 6-7 months.
Court records show that Christy petitioned for a domestic violence civil protection order against her then-husband back in late 2007. Her attorney says Christy testified that Butch had threatened her life. Butch said he did not. The judge ruled it was a “he said, she said” with not enough evidence and did not grant the order.
Sheriff Donini says domestic violence protection orders do not guarantee safety.
“In this case, with such violence, you don’t know that it would have helped, but you can never tell,” Sheriff Marty Donini said.
Donini also tells WSAZ.com that Grice’s daughter was at an after-prom party when her mother was shot.
Grice worked as a pharmacist at King’s Daughter Medical Center
