It was later discovered that the reason he was not killed was because his bike was on his right side, and thus took the full force of the truck. Testifying was the hardest thing I've ever done. When they took the bandages off Sophia's head, they had shaved a big section. And I believe this is what I'm here for, to share my story. Due to the extent of his injuries, DeVine was at very high risk of having to have his legs amputated, and having multiple organ failure.
He seemed like he had some future plans that he was really happy and excited about. One for messages, and one for profiles. Preliminary exams are always difficult because they are usually just a couple of weeks after the incident had occurred.
She went to counseling at one point, cause she was feeling depressed, but she was level headed, she wasn't doing things that I felt like were bad for her or destructive and so I trusted her. He couldn't understand why after four days she wouldn't communicate with him, and that's what set everything in motion for him. He threw me up against the wall, told me that nobody would ever love me, and that I didn't deserve him.
Their relationship started as a typical teenage romance, but quickly evolved into something darker. She was in surgery for a few hours and then they put the whole hospital on lock down. And I'm gonna have a baseball bat.
He didn't want me to hang out with my friends. He sent me a picture outside of my house. He was charged with home invasion, arson, and felonious assault. In fact, despite the court order of separation, Sophia and Adam secretly picked right back up where they left off.
That morning there were some chairs moved on the back deck, up against the door and I thought that was kind of weird. The police came in and were just asking me questions. He regained full mobility but still has extensive scarring on his legs.
And then came over to me and started dragging both of us towards the flames. Everything that happened with Adam made me feel so ugly inside and out and horrible about myself.
She was safe now, Adam wasn't there. She didn't want her family to find out.
The police came, and they actually caught Adam on his way back to the apartment and they tackled him and captured him. He did not come home that night, he didn't answer any calls that night, he didn't answer any texts. Adam was kind of backing away and he backed into the window and as Kiely just kept hitting, Adam crouched and kind of fell back through the window and Sophie was free. He'd admitted to what he'd done.
All this, he said, contributed to how he saw comedy as a way of bringing people together. We moved from the apartment to the house because of the attack.
