Woman accused of killing fiance on wedding day

Authorities say a woman in Pennsylvania stabbed her fiance to death during an argument on their wedding day.

Na Cola Darcel Franklin has been charged with criminal homicide in the death of 36-year-old Billy Rafeal Brewster in their Whitehall Township apartment.

The (Allentown) Morning Call newspaper reports that at her video arraignment on August 11th, 31-year-old Franklin sobbed: "I did not kill him on purpose."

Neighbor Steve Engel says the pastor who was supposed to perform the ceremony came to the apartment building after being unable to reach the couple, who were set to marry at 10 am that day.

While it's not always possible to gauge someone's future behavior -- especially in situations where there may not be a previous rap sheet, InvestiDaters can turn to body language and verbal clues to gauge a person's volatility.

If you're dating someone who has a bad or unpredictable temper, turns to humiliation, or displays other aggressive or controlling behaviors -- take a step back and assess your situation. If you're unsure, if you're in treacherous territory, click here to look at some common signs of abusive relationships. Or call the National Domestic Violence Hotline for more information at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233).

Another great resource, with a free downloadable simulation app is, http://loveisnotabuse.com. While the site mostly helps teenagers and their parents learn about the pitfalls of love and abuse, particularly in the digital age, it's an excellent starting point for anyone at any age.

Lastly, asking yourself some honest, introspective, questions, can also help. Dr. Elsbeth Martindale, PsyD, makes a deck of cards (iPhone app too) called Things to Know Before You Say "Go." The deck of cards walks you through an important series of questions to ask yourself before you become involved with someone.

While there are never any guarantees in life, these types of tools help you make a more informed decision. They can also help you once you've made a decision to re-evaluate it and if necessary readjust.
