Domestic violence advocates speak out following the death of a 2-year-old Albert Lea boy

(ABC 6 News) – The mother of a murder victim is now an advocate for victims of domestic abuse and is pushing for change.

Stacia Schnoor, says the recent death of a two-year-old boy in Albert Lea is another glaring example of a broken justice system where repeat offenders are given a slap on the wrist and people are dying because of it.

In May, Stacia’s daughter, 25-year-old Sabrina Schnoor, was shot and left to die under an I-35 overpass in Owatonna.

The alleged killer – Schnoor’s ex-boyfriend.

Jason Horner, 38, had a violent criminal record but mostly stayed out of jail due to plea deals. Stacia says that gave him the perfect opportunity to kill her daughter.

ABC 6 News anchor James Wilcox sat down with Stacia who says an Albert Lea boy is dead just like her daughter, and our system is to blame.
