Clark served six months in jail but was killed shortly after his release. “She has hurt a lot of families and torn up a lot of families for no reason. Why?” Ms. Cottrell asked. “People don’t realize that — God sees all and God knows all, and you’re not getting away with anything. This is all that I have now.
