MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -
Over the past two weeks, at least three murders in the Tennessee Valley have been domestic in nature.
One Alabama lawmaker is trying to strengthen laws for people who get protection orders against dangerous people in their lives.
Senator Clay Scofield said domestic violence is a real problem, so he modeled his bill after an instance that happened in Marshall County nearly 13 years ago.
Kelley's Law is for Kelley Rutledge Johnston who was murdered by her estranged husband after she took out a protection order against him.
Johnston was murdered July 20, 2000 by her husband David Johnston.
Scofield said he hopes to tackle the domestic violence problem with this bill, although passage has failed in previous attempts.
The bill has passed its initial hurdle in the last couple of weeks, making it out of committee.
Scofield said he removed language in the bill whereby the death penalty is not an option.
He feels that may help the bill's passage this time around.
"Should get at least life without parole, and they should be taken off the streets because even though that victim may be gone, their friends and family are still around."
Scofield hopes it will go for a Senate vote later this week.
