Marissa Alexander Rico Gray

Husband recants

18 May, 2012

Rico Grey denies ever abusing Alexander and says:

it was her violent nature, not his, that ultimately landed her 20 years in prison.

Grey, who has been arrested and convicted of assault, says he admitted abuse in his deposition because he and his wife reconciled and he wanted to protect her from prison. He maintains he was trying to leave with his sons when the shot was fired.
