Abused wife gets 6 years in jail for running over & killing husband after he beat her & their child

AriasWhat is it about women with the last name of Arias who kill their significant others? This atrocious story comes out of Colorado. 

The Daily Mail reports,

A Colorado woman who ran over her wife-beating husband while drunk has been jailed for six years.

Nancy Jo Arias ploughed into her husband Philip Anthony Lobato outside a shop in Westminster in north Denver on August 11, 2014.

The 39-year-old killer claimed her husband had beaten her and smacked her in the face several times before she jumped onto her car and sped forward.

Even if he did beat her and her daughter, it doesn’t justify murdering him. Her decision making was impaired because she was drunk which was really stupid on her part. Apparently they had been fighting over infidelity. In situations like that, where a couple can’t work it out, they need to just split up. This is a tragedy that was completely avoidable.
