“She was a mom, she was a good person,” said one of Stone’s friends who did not want to be identified. “She didn’t deserve what happened to her.”

Stone’s friend also said that she was in an abusive relationship with a man suspected of stabbing her.

“Physical, emotional, all of that,” she said. “Somebody she didn’t want to be with who wouldn’t let her go.”
