CT Mirror: Children of domestic violence - 'daddy shooted mommy'
The neighborhood was still in shock contemplating the murder-suicide that had just taken place in the Bristol home of Kyla and Alexander Ryng. "I'm sick about the kids, what they saw," said one neighbor.
The couple's three young children were the latest to witness terrible domestic violence -- and only the most recent victims inspiring a panel of community leaders to meet last week. Following child-witnessed homicides in Bristol and Oxford in less than two months, representatives of domestic abuse service agencies from across Connecticut met to discuss ways to improve services for children in violence households.
