  1. I was a close friend of Ellen. I can tell you Ralfie was not a nice guy. He beat and abused Ellen horribly for years. He was an extremely controlling monster. I knew them both. Ralfie is the cheapest guy I know. He wasn’t going to let her her go and get any of his money. He said they argued about their daughter and she pushed him. That is a total lie. Evidence shows she was sitting down and he hit her so hard from behind that the point of the pen she was writing with came out. If she was writing, they weren’t arguing at the time. He put the dog upstairs in the daughter’s bedroom before he killed her. He planned it, he should get life in prison. This is 1st degree murder, not manslaughter. He should never get out and be allowed to poison his daughter with his perversions again. The day he killed Ellen was Ellen’s last day in that house. She was going to Boston for the holiday vacation that afternoon and coming back to her new apartment in January. That bastard wanted it all, the money and the daughter. He should NOT get off in 4 to 7 years. That OJ trial was a sad day for justice. District Attorney’s go for the sure thing. They say since OJ got away with murder, we might as well get some prison time for the sure thing rather than go for Murder in the first degree. I won’t be satisfied unless he gets the maximum of 20 years.

  2. I thought he was sick and going to die! Was that a lie?
