Northwestern focus on intimate partner violence airs tonight

Story is part of a CBC-TV series broadcast on The National

A CBC-TV continuing series of stories on intimate partner violence is scheduled to have a northwestern focus on tonight’s The National.

The story surrounding Isabelle Johnny who was convicted in 2017 of manslaughter in the death of her former boyfriend Zachary Turner-Good in May 2015 is scheduled to air.

Johnny was sentenced to four years in jail but was given credit of 1,262 days for time already served.

She was also ordered to spend three years on probation, provide a DNA sample, not have any contact with any of Turner-Good’s family and will have to abide by a lifetime firearms prohibition.

Early in the morning of May 16, 2015, Terrace RCMP were called to a downtown Terrace apartment where they discovered Turner-Good bleeding from the chest, said police in a release May 19, 2015.

He was rushed to hospital by police, but died of his wound a short time later, said police at that time.

Johnny was well known to police. At the time of the incident she was on three separate probation orders, including one in relation to a domestic assault on the deceased, reported police at that time.

The CBC series called “Deadly Relationships” is the result of a 16-month investigation compiling and analyzing intimate partner homicides across Canada between January 2015 and June 2020, the crown corporation indicated.
