  1. Joyce Malone should have reached out to her daughter Brenda Eddy & son inlaw John Eddy for help to get away from her marriage to Ralph or she could have called
    social services or Adult protective services for help with her emotional disturbed abused life that she lived with for 50 years. That would have been better than killing Ralph her own husband. Now she has to pay for the suffer by spending time in prison for the terrible crime that she committed. Emotional abuse & physical abuse are about the same but physical abuse is worse.
