The Lenexa pastry chef had just quit her job and launched a new business when she was assaulted by her husband last fall.
She left her apartment and took refuge in a local motel to escape the abuse.
With little time and money, there were few options available as she tried negotiating her way out of a lease.
She could remain in the apartment where she would not only live with a daily reminder of the trauma, but would still be vulnerable to more abuse from her husband.
Or she could relocate within the complex, pay a $300 transfer fee . . .
