Tulsa's rate of women murdered by men far outpaces national figure
By Dylan Goforth
Ashley Brizendine was 21 and pregnant the first time her boyfriend was jailed on allegations that he abused her.
Her boyfriend, Brian Xavier Harris, was arrested after she told police that he grabbed her by the throat and poured red Kool-Aid down her throat. Harris finally stopped, she told police, and told her to “go take a shower.” While she was showering, Harris hit her in the head, leaving a bruise, and cut her with a knife, leaving a visible 2-inch laceration, she said.
