Amanda Mangas, known to her loved ones as ‘Mindi’, was shot to death by her ex-boyfriend after he found out that the young mom started a new relationship.
Investigators have revealed the young woman’s killer was her abusive ex boyfriend. He shot Mangas in the chest. As she died she used her remaining strength to tell law enforcement the name of her killer: James Ramey.
Ramey was held by police before after he had threatened the young mom with death if she ever left him. He had apparently held a knife to her throat.
After the vicious murder, he abducted his 10-month-old son with Mangas, who he was forbidden by a court from seeing.
The Daily Mail has more:
He had allegedly threatened to kill her if she left him, and is accused of aggravated murder after bursting into her home in Delta, Ohio, and opening fire on Tuesday morning.
Ramey is then believed to have abducted his son, 10-month-old Winston, who he was forbidden from seeing.
Mangas, in her last words before her death, asked police to find her son.
The heartbreaking exchange led officers to the child and his father. Mangas, 23, asked a sergeant who rushed to the crime scene: ‘Where’s Winston?’
A month ago Ramey, 27, was charged with aggravated menacing after allegedly threatening to kill her if she left him. He had allegedly held a knife to her neck last year, 13abc reports.
The day before she was shot, Mangas – who had a protective order against Ramey – announced on Facebook that she was in a new relationship.
