[EXCERPTS] The mother of a pregnant woman killed by her police officer lover says she knew from the start that he was to blame for the death but she has forgiven him as he heads to prison for at least 57 years. "I never in my heart wanted to believe you could hurt her, but in my soul I knew you had... I would have never been able to raise Blake and hate you... I serve an amazing God, Bobby, a God that forgives and heals and restores people. I want you to know today that I do forgive you and I know that's only through him I'm able to do that. I pray you find him and you find that forgiveness that nobody else in this room can give you... Your honor, I may not have a family to go home to after this, but I pray that you make a way for this man to someday be able to get out of there and begin a new life, and to hold his son, maybe as a man... And I hope and pray I'm able to raise him to forgive you. He knows what you did. You would not believe the stories he's told us"...
