The person who called 911 was her sister, Lynn. and the motive was they were seperated and he came back to the house wanting sex. She refused and he got violent. She managed to get a baseball bat while he grabbed a knife. He stabbed her multiple times til dead. This was my Aunt Cindi! We love you and his time will come!
