Number of domestic violence cases in Birmingham increasing

Good evening from the WBRC FOX6 Newsroom. This is Jonathan Hardison with a look at the stories we're following for you tonight:

We’re working to get the name of the boyfriend Birmingham police just arrested who they say stabbed his girlfriend to death earlier this afternoon. This is the second case of a woman killed by her boyfriend in Birmingham just this month. Tonight on WBRC FOX6 News at 9, our Sherea Harris is digging into the numbers of domestic violence cases in Jefferson County in the last year to see if this is just an anomaly, or a more disturbing trend. And at 10 she’s
explaining why and how the sheriff’s department has changed the way it responds to domestic violence cases.
 
Also new on WBRC FOX6 News at 10, we’re hearing for the first time and exclusively from the mayor of Alex City who was booked on an assault charge this afternoon. Tonight he explains to you how and why he got into a fist fight with a city councilor during a council meeting.
