A 2-year-old girl, who loved animal crackers and Minnie Mouse, was allegedly suffocated by her father’s fianceè. Police say a mother of five was gunned down by her estranged husband after picking her kids up from daycare. A man who intended to watch his son play baseball over Father’s Day weekend was found dead, apparently shot by his ex-girlfriend. These are a few of the horrifying domestic violence fatalities that have occurred in North Texas in 2014, when The Dallas Morning News began tracking such incidents in its yearlong “Deadly Affection” series.
