She goes on to details the nature of sister Amanda northern relationship with her then boyfriend. "The relationship between them it was rocky. But we were close, so I never would have thought it would have went that far. It was one incident he put her and her bestfriend out of the car and made them walk home. The last time I seen her, it was a Monday I stayed with her Sunday. All my family was over there. All that night he was watching CSI how to get away with murder, and I’m not thinking he’s going to kill my sister.
