    True love.

    Woman to marry man who shot her
    Boyfriend sentenced to 20 years in prison
    Link

    SAN BERNARDINO, California (AP) -- A woman says she still plans to marry the man who shot her in the groin and then held her hostage in his family's garage for six days.

    Tina Marie Stebbins revealed her intentions in a letter released Monday as her boyfriend, Christian Leroy Lindblad, 37, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for shooting her in June 2002.

    "I love Christian today as deeply as I loved him before this awful thing happened to us," Stebbins wrote in a victim impact statement. "We are soul mates."

    She added: "I want to tell you all that I have forgiven Christian. And I pray that Christian has forgiven me for failing him when he needed me most."

    Lindblad and his parents tried to cover up the shooting by treating Stebbins with home remedies, according to a San Bernardino County Sheriff's report. They also threatened her young sons and her family, the report said.

    Critically wounded, Stebbins was airlifted to a hospital after Lindblad mentioned the incident to a family friend who was a firefighter.

    Lindblad pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted murder as his trial was about to begin in early October. He has said the shooting was an accident.

    His father, Robert Leroy Lindblad, 72, pleaded guilty in 2003 to being an accessory and was sentenced to three years in prison.

    His mother, Shirley Royann Samantha Lindblad, 62, was sentenced to three years probation after pleading guilty to the same charge.

    If the shooting was an accident, why was he holding her hostage in his parent's garage?? I don't get it.

    I think he was trying to get through a paperback book on hostage taking and it was obvious from looking at the book that he only made it halfway through chapter three. Chapter four was about shooting. So, obviously, it was an accident. :shock:

    There are all kinds of nuts and flakes out there...this is simply another story about 4 of them.

    I've seen it so many times in Domestic Abuse cases, where the woman - after being pounded silly by Jethro - goes right back to him because she "loves" him. Even though everyone else knows she's simply counting the days until her next beating.

    That is a large part of the reason that Wisconsin does not alolow Citizens to "press charges"...all charges are brought forth by the State. That way Sally can't recant her statement about Jethro pounding her silly, and Jethro winds up in jail (For far too short a period of time, usually).

    You simply can't save people that don't want to be saved.
