    Shouldn’t this charge be attempted murder. He said he might as well kill her and then held her underwater???

      One would think so… but he did tell her she would be fine, so I guess that makes it OK

    Their daughter died under suspicious circumstances a couple of years ago. This man is a loose cannon who WILL kill someone else if he isn’t stopped. He needs to be locked away where he is a danger to no one but himself

      Proof is in the facts……no lies in official court records. He beats her in May of 2013, is arrested and charged by county officer and taken to jail. Before it can go to court, he attacks her again, nearly killing her, city officers at scene again press charges and issue a warrant. When he gets to court he pled and was found guilty to 3rd degree battery, 2 counts, and breaking an order of protection, and a no contact order. He doesnt understand rules, and will only keep up the abuse. If he claims lies, then why has the system, police, and judges seen differently. She has a 2 year permanent protection order and she still hides from him.

        She’s a the lying woman in Arkansas. Plead no contest cause she told me that she had the order removed. The whole thing was a set up to be with her boyfriend steve cope. She says he set the whole thing up. Had to plead no contest to keep from being in trouble for trying to be her husband and keep my family together. But if anyone wants to give a blanket party I live at 1004 double l rd white hall AR come on down.

        You say that you plead guilty to two counts of 3rd degree assault and battery because you thought the order of protection was lifted So that makes it okay to go back and beat the crap out of her again? Do I get an invitation to your blanket party

        Yes God knows everything I’ve put up with. I’ve been with her for 25 years and until she met tiffany alverson and steve cope we never had problems. Her problem is she hates to be caught. When she got caught stealing 36000 dollars she tried to commit suicide. She get caught cheating she tries to commit suicide. Guess she just wanted me to be as guilty on paper as her so she set all this up with her boyfreind. If you’ll call or text me at 8704892104 I’ll send you the text that says just that. It says steve cope is the devil and I was the devils child. I’d you will make sure he pays for what he done to us I will walk in court holding your hand. Goes on to say he set all this up. And has an unregistered gun he plans on using on you. Just call me if you want some more info.

    She ista say her momma beat up on her all the time and I believed that crap. Now I know that crap was made up too. When I met her she was trying to kill herself cause her momma was abusing her supposably, man I sure do wish I wouldn’t have believed that crap and took her somewhere safe. My mom and grandma always said she was gonna get me in trouble on day and sure enough they knew what they was talking about.

      It’s so sad that some people actually believe his lies, but Karen, you are right, he will get his one day! Heather hasn’t deserved any of his abuse, but she has withstood more than I calls imagine with gracefulness and continues to rebuild her life.

    From someone who knows nothing about either side of the family, these comments are truly sad. And John’s comment was really uncalled for.
