Since October 2013, Hope House has joined with other domestic violence programs around the state by implementing the Lantern Project. For our part in this statewide project, we added to the lamppost in front of Hope House a purple wreath. We will turn on the light for a week every time there is a death related to domestic violence in Wisconsin. We will post information online about the person(s) that was killed. If you drive by our building and see our lamppost on, please reflect on the deadly impact that domestic violence has on our communities.
September 3rd, 2018 Quantrell Ross, Age 38, Milwaukee WI
Homicide Charge Filed Against Milwaukee Woman Who Stabbed Boyfriend
A Milwaukee woman charged with homicide told police the dead man had been punching her, so she grabbed a butcher knife and stabbed him. The incident happened September 3rd. Officers were called to the apartment and, when they arrived, they say 33-year-old Danielle Latham was calm, even though she was sitting on the floor with blood on her hands and clothes. Quantrell Ross was unresponsive and life-saving measures failed. Latham is scheduled to return to Milwaukee County Circuit Court Friday. If convicted, she would face up to 60 years in prison.
