The tragedy of Alexsis Tovizi

July 04, 2013 at 10:49 AM

Cheryl Tovizi is the mother of the domestic violence homicide victim Alexsis Tovizi. She shares the story of the death of her daughter, the 'rescuer' in the hands of her abuser as a lesson in domestic violence.

'Perhaps the story of domestic abuse needs to be told backwards. If the ending comes first, perhaps more people will see that an abusive relationship builds slowly but can end in murder.' The trial and conviction of Nikki Roper in Christchurch High Court for the murder of the young mother ended yesterday with his sentencing.

Mrs Tovizi also questions the usefulness of a protection order; her daughter's death is case in point. Read the mother's interview interview and related news here
