Lacey Jones-McKnight,20, was found murdered in a car on Thursday and a former boyfriend of hers has been arrested and charged with second-degree murder. There are mixed reports on this case involving whether or not the suspect confessed to the murder, but what matters most is that the woman is most definitely deceased.
The cause of death in this tragic case isn't yet known to the public, but officials believe her death was done by way of domestic violence. In other words, she was murdered during a physical altercation with the man accused of killing her.
The story of this young woman can be read up on more thoroughly here, but it's truly sad and should serve as a reminder to women that violent relationships seldom end positively. She had tried separating herself from him from the most part, but apparently no matter what she just couldn't get away from the guy. As this source points out, the former boyfriend and accused murderer of Lacey Jones-McKnight had issues with stalking her.
