Domestic violence experts urge battered women to seek help
Domestic violence advocates say the recent murder of a nurse has some of the most obvious signs of domestic abuse and are urging other battered women to get help before it is too late.
Police say Tina Adovasio was in the process of leaving her accused killer and husband Edwin Coello the night he allegedly strangled her to death in Yorktown.
Karen Cheeks-Lomax, the executive director of My Sister's Place, says that in many cases the decision to leave an abuser can often lead to an escalation in violence.
Cheeks-Lomax says the best thing any abused woman can do is seek help, talk to someone she can trust and take action.
