With his 3-year-old daughter looking on, a Hartly man shot his estranged wife in the head Thursday night, then killed himself the same way, state police said Friday.
Julie Marie Gallegos, 36, had dialed 911 about 11:25 p.m. As dispatchers listened, they heard a gunshot. Officers found the bodies of Julie and John A. Gallegos, who had been shot once in the head with a .357-caliber pistol found at the scene.

And what exactly did this idiot judge expect the man to live on,the kindness of strangers?
And what exactly did this idiot judge expect the man to live on,the kindness of strangers? Or maybe he didn't get the word about slavery ending?
Exactly - it amazes me that there aren't many more of these case because of the way that judges get on their "high and mighty" and F*** the man with no regard to the realities. It's so easy to ruin a person and say "it's for the children"...
It goes beyond that. The truth is the majority of these judges don't even live on the same planet as "reality",when it comes to a working man's income and lifestyle. Like all judges,he is a successful laywer who is a millionaire that most likely came from a politically-connected family of millionaire lawyers. He thinks $1,500 a month is lunch money,and is genuinely outraged that somebody doesn't "want" to pay it. If you tell him you can't,he thinks you are lying.

Yup,they like to get their names in the press. Ya never know when you might be considered for a position on a higher court.
If one person has been physically violent to another, the only shelter I think we should provide that person is in a jail cell for a very long time. Then again, this woman may have been given the option to press charges against him but declined. Yet, even if she had pressed charges, he would've only been in prison for a short time, and then he'd really be mad upon his release.
Make BOTH parties go to anger managment. (physical violence may be wrong but so is verbal baiting to violence.)
I think there's a major distinction between "verbal" and "physical". Also, counseling almost never helps in these cases. It's really not about anger management. One person is a sociopath who seeks pleasure from physically bullying, beating, or torturing the other person - that's what it's really about.
