Philadelphia, Pa. (January 6, 2017) – As wife killer Rafael Robb walks out of a Western Pennsylvania prison on Sunday a free man after serving his full 10-year (plea bargained) sentence, family and supporters of his victim, Ellen Gregory, will gather at her house – the crime scene – at 11 a.m. Monday to remember her and speak on behalf of all victims of domestic violence and abuse.
Robb bludgeoned Ms. Gregory, the mother of the couple’s then 12-year-old daughter, to death on December 22, 2006 in the family home as she was wrapping Christmas presents. Robb made repeated, unsuccessful attempts to secure early release, and his attempts at early parole were halted through strong efforts made by many to keep him incarcerated for the full term of only 5-10 years.
WHEN: 11 a.m., Monday, January 9, 2017
WHERE: 670 Forest Rd., King of Prussia, PA
Upper Merion Township
Former home of Ellen Gregory Robb (vacant since the killing)
NOTE: There will be brief remarks, followed by Q&A, by:
– Gary Gregory, brother of Ellen Gregory, founder of Every Great Reason (www.everygreatreason.org) foundation formed in her memory to advocate for victims of domestic violence and abuse.
– Michael Vereb, former PA State Rep., primary sponsor of Ellen’s Law
– Representatives of Saltz, Mongeluzzi, & Bendesky, trial attorneys for Ellen Gregory’s family.
