Mother Shot In Head While Protecting Baby From Drunken, Abusive Father
Jessica Arrendale sacrificed her life for her baby, by sliding herself over a toilet and protecting the baby who was placed in the bowl as she lay dying, shot in the head by the baby’s drunken, abusive father.
The fight started Saturday night after the two returned from dinner and Antoine Davis, 30, became belligerent, [Jessica’s mother, Teresa] Ionniello said. Holding their baby, Jessica tried to defend herself with a baseball bat, but Davis took it from her, according to Inninello.
Davis struck Jessica several times with the bat, and she ran into a bathroom and locked the door. Davis, a former Marine, got an assault rifle and beat down the door. He shot Jessica once in the head.”He shot her and they (police) don’t know how she was able to twist her body and fall literally in the opposite direction,” Ionniello told the station. Instead of falling onto the floor, Ionniello said her daughter fell over the toilet, dropping little Cobie into the bowl.
Davis later shot himself to death inside the home as police gathered outside.[su_csky_ad]
