    and ordered to have no contact with Garcia upon his release.

    Oooo. An order. Well she should feel safe now. Nothing like and order to stay away vs. the ability to understand that KILLING HER is an illegal thing to do.

    He has serious issues and should get help for it. He thinks he can control women. His parents did not raise him properly. Women, young ladies should absolutely say away from this young man.
