Daycare owner opens up about shooting her husband over child abuse allegations


“I felt like the blood had just drained out of my body because … it was my husband,” Shanteari said. 

“I think about that child all the time. I think about all the children, all the time.” 

Shanteari’s attorney Tony Garcia said that “She was confronted with a situation where a child that she had watched take their first steps, go to the first day of [school], learn how to ride a bike, grow up in front of them – she had this parent come to her and broke her whole world.” 

The harsh reality of child abuse does long-term damage. And it takes an emotional toll on victims, their families and people like Shanteari.
