The month of October marks Domestic Violence Awareness Month and in light of recent incidents, it TMs never been a more appropriate time to discuss the matter.
Over the weekend, a man stabbed his soon to be ex-wife 24 times just before their divorce was finalized, then turned the knife on himself.
It came after a long history of domestic violence between the couple.
This is the pattern, officials say, can emerge from these situations.
This morning, Cameron County District Attorney Luis Saenz joined Action 4 Sunrise to discuss his Domestic Violence Unit.
He went over the signs to look for, and how the unit is giving another outlet to those in need of help.
