Sally said in the documentary that when she met Ray, he looked like the statue of David and he was beautiful. However, she revealed that from early on their relationship was fraught with violence.

After three days they turned into a married couple, Ray punched her in the face and split her lip. She was also choked by Ray and had once broken her nose in front of her two young kids, John and Shantina. Sally also used to wrestle with men for money to help pay for Ray’s addiction to anabolic steroids. Sally was tolerating Ray’s abuse for many years. She finally responded to his violence on Valentine’s Day, 1995, and shot him once in the face and once in the stomach.

Sally’s two kids, John and Shantina were at home when she shot Ray. After shooting Ray with a sawed-off shotgun, she called 911 and was then arrested by the police. In the Netflix series, her son, John who was 9 at that time told in a police interrogation room that if you thought he was gonna kill you then that was self-defense.

However, Sally was not able to prove her self-defense claim. The prosecutors then claimed that she had tried to reload the gun which was found in a couple’s bedroom. Sally has further accused her that she could not have been a domestic violence victim as she was physically strong. That eventually contributed to her conviction for second-degree murder. She was ultimately sent to prison for 19 years and was paroled from prison in 2020.
