One Roanoke family hopes to change the way the community and the court system look at domestic violence.
Relatives of 21-year-old Alesha Ann Johnson say the court system is partly to blame for her death.
Johnson was shot and killed on Thursday, apparently by her former boyfriend, 26- year -old Larry William Mack.
Mack then committed suicide.
Members of Johnson's family say Mack had been stalking her for weeks.

Since then they say his actions became progressively more violent. ((SILVIA MCCOLLUM/ALESHA'S MOTHER: NOTHING STOPPED HIM FROM KNOCKING ON THESE DOORS AND WINDOWS. NOTHING STOPPED HIM FROM CAMPING OUT ON THESE GROUNDS AND WATCHING THIS HOUSE 24/7 AND STALKING US.)) ((ANGELA JOHNSON/ALESHA'S SISTER: HE HAS GONE INTO PUBLIC PLACES AND SHOWN HIS AGGRESSION. HE ABDUCTED HER FROM A PUBLIC STORE. NOW WHAT MORE INDICATION DO YOU NEED THAT THIS MAN IS VIOLENT.))
Roanoke police say Mack had been arrested six times since October third.
The charges included assault and battery, embezzlement and shooting into a vehicle.
Each time he was released on an unsecured bond.
The latest incident happened last weekend, when Alesha Johnson filed a complaint against Mack for stalking.
Angela Johnson says each time Mack broke the restraining order, Alesha called police, but she says it seemed the police and the court system did not take the complaints seriously.
And Angela says she believes it's a problem that occurs too frequently. ((ANGELA JOHNSON: WOMEN TODAY HAVE NO RIGHTS UNTIL THEY'RE DEAD. THEY SCREAM OUT FOR HELP AND EITHER THEIR LIVES ARE TURNED UPSIDE DOWN OR THEY'RE AFRAID TO COME OUT OF THEIR HOMES. THEY'RE AFRAID TO GO TO WORK. THEY'RE CONSTANTLY LOOKING OVER THEIR SHOULDERS.
