911 calls detail last moments of womanâ€™s life in Kenton murder 911 call: Ohio girl, 8, witnesses mother's murder - Toledo Blade ~ Kenton Woman Stabbed To Death In Front Of Daughter - WFIN ~ Editor's Note: I have listened to the audio tapes. They are absolutely heart-wrenching. If ever there was a reason to abandon the "dial 911 and wait" mindset, this is it. (Note too that no one in the news media have jumped on this terrible event as a reason to ban knives.) ~ by Greg Sowinski ~ The call to 911 made by a woman who would be stabbed to death by her ex-boyfriend minutes later began in a calm matter as she expressed fear but with no indication she was about to be attacked. ~ Teresa Nelson's call shows how quickly a situation can change and how precious life is as her life ends in front of her 8-year-old daughter and her grandmother at the hands of Justin Douglas Manns. He was struggling to deal with their breakup. ~ "I need a sheriff out here. I have an unwanted person and he's at my door and he will not leave and I'm scared for my life," she told the Hardin County Sheriff's dispatcher. ~ The dispatcher calls a deputy to go to the home about four miles outside Kenton. ~ The 28-year-old Nelson tells the dispatcher Manns was at her home the previous day threatening to kill himself. She said he had a knife. ~ "Please tell them to hurry," Nelson said. ~ During the call, Nelson speaks to Manns, 22, through the door telling him another person told her to call the police if he returned. ~ "Why?" Manns is heard asking. ~ Nelson told him it was because of his actions the day before. ~ "Your whole little knife incident yesterday," she said. ~ The dispatcher starts inquiring about the situation that led Manns to the door. ~ Nelson said she had an engagement ring from Manns and he wanted it back. ~ "Yesterday, he was threatening to kill himself on my front porch," she said. ~ Nearly four minutes into the call, the dispatcher tells Nelson there are deputies on the way. ~ The call seemed routine and like many others that are worked out peacefully and thereâ€™s no indication Manns is about to kick in the door. ~ The dispatcher asked Nelson if she wants to her to stay on the phone and Nelson said yes. Nelson then begins talking to Manns again through the door. ~ "I will find someone to give you your ring. You scare me. You literally scare me after you had that knife on the front porch yesterday," she said. ~ The dispatcher told Nelson to stop talking to him. Nelson tells her 8-year-old daughter, Kennedy, to go into another room. ~ Then, without notice, Manns begins kicking at the door. ~ "He's kicking in the door," she screams. "Grandma get down, get down. Oh my God, he's got me by the hair. Oh my God, stop, stop." ~ Nelson continues screaming into the phone. ~ "No, stop. He stabbed me, he stabbed me," she screamed ~ The call goes dead. ~ The dispatcher immediately calls back and Nelson's daughter, Kennedy, answers. ~ Kennedy's first words are: "Justin stabbed her." ~ The dispatcher tells Kennedy deputies are on the way. ~ Moments later that call goes dead and the dispatcher calls back. ~ Kennedy answers and the dispatcher asked Kennedy where her mother was stabbed. Kennedy said she did not know. ~ Kennedy calls out for her mom and tells the dispatcher Manns still is there. The dispatcher tells her to stay in another room. ~ "Don't pay attention to what's going on out there, OK? Go in a room and shut the door," she tells Kennedy. ~ The two calls to Kennedy last more than seven minutes with the dispatcher trying to comfort Kennedy while telling her deputies are on the way. Kennedy tells the dispatcher sheâ€™s in a bedroom with her grandmother. ~ In the middle of the third call, Kennedy starts to scream: "Mommy's dead, mommy's dead." ~ The dispatcher asked whether Nelson was talking and Kennedy asked her grandmother. The grandmother said Nelson was not talking. ~ "I think she's dead," Kennedy said. â€œPlease get here." ~ The dispatcher tells Kennedy deputies are on the way and they would help her mother. ~ Near the end of the third call, sirens can be heard in the background. The dispatcher tells Kennedy a deputy is inside the home but she should remain in the bedroom. ~ Kennedy asked her grandmother whether Nelson was dead. ~ "I don't know, she's just laying there," the grandmother is heard saying. ~ Kennedy begins screaming, "I think mommy's dead." ~ The dispatcher tells her police are in the home and officers will help Nelson. She continues to talk to Kennedy to try to keep her in the bedroom. ~ Kennedy screams again, "My mommy is dead. Dead." ~ A police officer is heard walking into the bedroom and Kennedy begins hysterically asking if her mother is dead. ~ "I don't want my mommy to be dead," she said. ~ The call ends. ~ As it turns out, Nelson died from injuries before deputies had a chance to get there given the rural location and Mann's quick actions. ~ After killing Nelson, Manns stabbed himself to death.
