17-year-old girl beaten Friday by her boyfriend over tangled fishing

tagtag Posts: 8,920 Admiral
The 17-year-old girl who was allegedly beaten Friday by her boyfriend over text messages and tangled fishing lines is reportedly showing signs of improvement after undergoing emergency brain surgery.

Hannah Connaway opened her eyes Wednesday, spoke with family and was upgraded to fair condition, WECT.com reported. Her boyfriend, Michael Hutton, 18, was charged with attempted first-degree murder among other charges that could amount to a jail sentence of life without parole.

"He was angry because he couldn't untangle fishing lines," Claudene Williams, who said she was with the couple during the fight, told the station. She went on to say he was upset over her "snarky" remarks.

"I keep on hearing her screaming and I keep on hearing all the sounds and it's just awful. I ran around the front door. I tried to get in. All the doors were locked. It was just awful," Williams told the station.

The alleged attack occurred inside Hutton's parent's home in Wilmington, N.C., on Friday and ended in the front yard. The WECT.com report said his parents were out of town.

Hutton's lawyer reportedly said his client suffers from alcohol-induced seizures, which could have triggered the event. Bail was set at $1 million

    Have you people ever tried to untangle braid? That can be very stressful!

    Great shot! I wouldn't have convicted him either. He's a hero in my book and one less lowlife scum child molester off the face of the earth.

    First off this mutt should be tried and shot sometime next week. No reason to delay.

    But I'd like to know if the girls parents knew their daughter was dating this loser?

    Connaway's Condition (updated Wednesday)

    Michael Hutton is accused of creating serious internal damage to Connaway's brain. Connaway's Grandfather, Jerry Strickland, said she needed brain surgery after the assault.

    Connaway was in critical condition, but has since been upgraded to fair as of Wednesday.

    "Hannah opened her eyes today and was hoarsely talking to Sunny and I," Claudene Williams, friend of Connaway and witness of the assault said. She was "telling us she loves and that she is happy to see us. She seems a bit confused but is flashing us bright smiles. The left side of her body is still not moving like the doctors would like, but it will get there hopefully."

    Connaway's friends and family held a candlelight service Monday night to show her family they are loved and supported by all their friends in this community during this difficult time.

    Sunny Platt, one of Connaway's friends, said Connaway had committed to going to the University of Hawaii next year to further her education.

    Suspect's Ex-Girlfriend Speaks

    Montgomery Register was one onlooker in the courtroom Tuesday. Register said she used to date Michael Hutton.

    "There's a lot that went on in the five and a half years that we did date," said Register.

    She would not say whether or not she had been assaulted by Hutton in the time she dated him.

    "I'm not going to put that out there, but people are going to believe what they want to believe and people that know me, know the things that I've been put through," said Register.

    She did state that her relationship with Hutton wasn't always great.

    "He's not a good guy. I've forgiven him. I've forgiven him. Like I said, I'm a Christian 100 percent. I have no grudge against him or his family, but I feel for the people he put after me after I left, after I walked away."

    Victim's Grandmother Speaks

    Cynthia Strickland describes her granddaughter, Hannah Connaway, as a brilliant, beautiful, and caring young girl who loves people. She says Hannah was aware of Hutton's mental instabilities.

    "Hannah thought she could save him," Strickland said. "She thought she could help him."

    Strickland says her granddaughter had been dating Hutton for about two months. While she never met him, she says she is praying for his family, too.

    "This is emotional for both families," Strickland says.

    Since Hannah was rushed into emergency surgery over the weekend, Strickland says the hospital has been flooded with friends holding a constant vigil for the 17-year-old's recovery.

    Strickland, who many know as a prominent real estate broker in the Wilmington area remains faithful that her granddaughter will pull through. She admits, though, doctors are hesitant to speak on her prognosis since she suffered a serious brain injury.

    "She was leaving in August to attend college in Hawaii and study mechanical engineering," Strickland said. "I'm still hoping she will be able to go."

    Strickland is also hopeful that something good will come from all of this---especially preventing it from happening to someone else.

    "I saw a bunch of guys at the hospital last night and I wanted to say to them if you know a friend who is not kind to a female, you should let somebody know," Strickland said. "If we had heard from one of those girls that had already had a bad experience with him (Hutton), this could have been avoided.

    Oh, I'm sure they knew, and told her what a loser he was, and she told them it's her life and they can't stop her. Maybe next time she'll make better choices, but I doubt it, probably will come to his defense.

    And he he needs to be put out of the world's misery.

    Why don't we put the accused girl friend beater on trial and convict him before we string him up? We don't need to go throwing the Constitution out the window just yet. Then we give him a fair punishment. Cane the guy, give him 5 years on a Cool Hand Luke prison farm that hand digs roadside drainage ditches in the Everglades, cane him again upon release and let him know the next time he is convicted of any crime we will really be hard on him.
