Domestic violence turned deadly

Posted: Updated:

Jefferson County Police officers and local domestic violence agencies around Jefferson County are speaking out against domestic violence.

This is following two separate incidents over the weekend where two women were killed by their lovers.

Tyna Spivey was shot in the head by her boyfriend Cedric Lowe in Northeast Jefferson County.

Hattie Stokes was found stabbed to death inside her home in McCalla by her husband Isaac Stokes. 

Amanda Carmichael with YWCA says domestic violence is a willful controlling behavior that people can avoid. "We have a 24/7 hotline that any victim can call. Just if they need someone to talk to or find resources or to see if they need a confidential shelter."

Formal charges for Lowe and Isaac are expected within 24 hours. If you are a victim of domestic violence, you're encouraged to call (205) 322-4878.
