(KUTV) - It’s been about six months since a Sandy woman – and her son – were shot dead in the street, the result of domestic violence incident.

Memorez Rackley (39) and her 6-year-old were killed by her ex-boyfriend who later took his own life.

Now, a new bipartisan bill aims to clearly outline what police can do – and how they can help domestic violence victims – before tragedy strikes.

The bill would define the law, offering clear guidelines to law enforcement. It would also make it easier for victims to get an order of protection.

Rackley’s brother, Travis Clark, is in favor of the new bill, which is cosponsored by Rep. Angela Romero (D - District 26) Sen. Todd Weiler (R - District 23).

He tells 2News he hopes it will spare other families the pain he continues to live through.
