In the wake of the recent NFL story involving Ray Rice, Dr. Phil explores the question of why some women stay with their alleged abusers. First, Chris Johnson -- Rice’s former Baltimore Ravens teammate -- opens up about his friend’s situation. What does he say Rice has confided in him since the scandal broke? And, Chris shares the heartbreaking story of his sister, Jennifer, who was shot and killed by her estranged boyfriend in 2011. What warning signs does he say his family missed? Then, Dr. Phil talks to Trichele, 44, who claims she was in an abusive marriage for years until July 2013, when she shot and killed her husband during an argument -- allegedly in self-defense. She's currently facing the possibility of 20 years in prison and says she's scared to death.
