On July 30,1987 my cousin, Rhonda Kay Bain Hutto, was murdered by her ex husband. This happened just two days after my twelfth birthday and I was there, hiding in the closet that he shot three times while shooting at Rhonda's mother who was running for her life carrying his and Rhonda's thirteen month old daughter. All this after he fractured Rhonda's skull behind her left ear knocking her to the ground. Then while she is screaming, "Help me momma, he's killing me momma". Rhonda amd their three daughters lived in a shelter for battered and abused women and children after fleeing from Carl Darrell Hutto. After finding her, she fled to Georgia and lived there with a family member with their three daughters. After finding her, yet again, she came to live with their three daughters at her mother's home in the small community of Loosier in Lawrence County Alabama. Rhonda gave her testimony at a Victim's Task Force meeting in Huntsville, Alabama that was arranged by the Alabama Attorney General. Soon after, she served on a board that pushed to have Domestic Violence Laws passed. Laws that she never got to live to see passed. Please don't let Rhonda's death be in vain. We ask that you sign this petition today. Thanks in advance.
