MARSHALL, TX (KSLA) –
An East Texas family is asking for the community’s help to get lawmakers’ attention.
They’re calling for a change that could save lives and help children make emergency calls no matter where they are.
This all stems from a recent murder case.
A Marshall man, Brad Dunn, was charged with killing his wife, Kari Hunt Dunn after stabbing and cutting her in an East Texas motel room.
Their three children were nearby.
Kari’s family members say her oldest daughter, age 9, tried to call police while her mother was being attacked. But the little girl couldn’t dial out of the motel room because she didn’t know to dial nine first.

Last night, Dr. Annise Mabry and Michelle Alexander of Back2Us Radio sat down and spoke to Kari’s sister Loni. It was a hard conversation as she told the entire story. Our hearts go our to the entire family, but most of all Kari’s children.
The most important take away for all of us, is to get involved. There is one simple step you can take to arm Kari’s family with the tools they need to start to change the law that could have provided a different ending for this family. SIGN THE PETITION!
