The aunt of the woman stabbed to death in Annapolis earlier this month by an ex-boyfriend is proposing a new law with stricter penalties for domestic abusers. Bonita Sims, aunt of Ronnesha Sims, proposed the new law to Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen in a letter addressing how local officials could help save victims from future abuse.
She calls it "Ronnesha's Law" which would prosecute and imprison an abuser with violent criminal history.
Later in court, Brown pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and was sentenced to 10 years in prison, but all 10 years were suspended by the judge. Instead, Brown ended up getting three years probation, according to online court records.
