“It pains me to ask,” Fulton District Attorney Howard said, “but I wonder how many more women and children must die before domestic violence is eliminated from our community.”
As far back as 2008, Watkins viciously beat Clark with a belt after learning she had been involved with someone else during one of their break-ups, according to testimony.
Clark also documented the abuse in her diary and she wrote how unhappy Watkins was that she was pregnant.
Clark wrote in one entry that Watkins “plans on making me have a miscarriage. If that happens, I will never forgive him for as long as I live.”
She also wrote, “All I can do is keep praying to God that he protects me and my baby.”
