Police say Lahomer Anderson’s boyfriend of four years, Brandon Donya Hughes, 34, shot her at her apartment. The couple had no documented history of domestic violence, but had recently been fighting over allegations of infidelity.
Anderson's adult daughter and 2-year-old granddaughter were home at the time of the shooting. They hid in the closet for 10 long minutes, waiting for help to arrive and wondering whether Anderson's attacker would come after them.
“I keep asking myself: Why? Why did you do that? Why did you love her to death like that?” Anderson's daughter, Lanin Green said, borrowing a phrase she heard her mother use often.
"She used to always tell people, 'Don’t love me to death. Just love me enough.' "
