Richard Espinoza was my cousin. Richie, was murdered by this woman. She got her kids back as well as the infant daughter that was fathered by Richie. She is even collecting on Social Security Survivor Benefits.

Not only did she stab him with one knife, but after the neighbor took the first knife away from her, she went back upstairs into her apartment and grabbed another knife to "finish him off." She did just that. Our family is disgusted with the system.
