[Excerpts] ...The girlfriend told police that the attack had been the latest of what she called ongoing abuse. The two had been dating for two years, she said, and in that time Moran threw her against a wall and broke furniture. Just weeks before the November incident, Moran allegedly pointed a gun at his girlfriend and ordered her to leave the home. Then, he pointed the gun at himself and said he would kill both of them if she ever told anyone. Toni Troop, a spokeswoman for Jane Doe Inc., a statewide coalition against domestic violence and sexual assault, said the case involving Moran and his girlfriend had all the makings of a relationship that could have turned more violent. His access to a gun and alleged history of violence were risk factors that should be taken seriously. "It appears all of these factors contributed to the indictment being sought by the district attorney, and we applaud him for taking them seriously," she said. "Too often, we see those risk factors go without due diligence on the part of the court system."

When she said she would report him, he threatened to kill himself he said. Assistant District Attorney Katherine Cappelli of the Norfolk District Attorney William Keating's office said at the hearing, the victim, who was not present, feared for her safety. She said over the course of the couple's three-year relationship the victim recounted at least five instances of abuse. Prior to the most recent incident Moran told the victim he would get help she said. Moran's attorney John Gugliemi, attempted to find a secure treatment facility for Moran as an alternative to jail, but could not find a secure location that satisfied the Coven's demands. Gugliemi argued that Moran's actions were a result of job stress, relationship stress, and the use of alcohol...
