A Murder In My Past

You couldn't believe my surprise when while surfing the web I found something...a portion of a court transcript.  A case that is a part of my past.  A past I don't recall, a murder of a woman I don't remember but related to by blood....
It's strange to see it in print.  Of course I've heard the stories and rumors but to see it in black and white for the whole world to see gives it a very surreal feeling...  I wonder now how she must have felt.  A tiny little thing.  She couldn't protect herself from the violence visited on her.  The children she left behind.  Some of whom have at least some memory of her, a smile, a look...  Some who can't recall her at all no matter how hard they try.  I've attached what I've found I've blacked out names and dates to protect the families, my family...
