Slain woman begged judge not to free ex-husband

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A woman stabbed to death in her suburban Atlanta home had pleaded with a judge not to release her ex-husband from jail, saying she feared she would not survive if he was free.

The ex-husband, 58-year-old John Stephen Kristofak, was apprehended Thursday at a Union City motel and charged with murder in the death of his 48-year-old ex-wife, Donna Nations Kristofak.

In October, Donna Kristofak begged Cobb County Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs not to release him from jail, saying she feared for her life and worried that a court order of protection from her ex-husband would not keep her safe. He was later released.

Grubbs told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (http://bit.ly/TlZ070) that she couldn't comment on the case, but said "you cannot predict human behavior."
