"I think it's the first step towards what her legacy should and will be", Bowes said.
In an unprecedented move, Ms Malinowski will now form part of the case against him through a video recording that she made five months prior to her death.
"She had been delicate and also she was burnt off, however, could very definitely articulate where she turned into what took place, panic, everything that you would anticipate, & rdquo; Bowes stated".
She could barely speak but was mustered the strength to give a few scathing words, saying: 'I never knew that a human being could be so evil.
Malinowski's ex-boyfriend, Michael Slager, was sentenced to 11 years in prison after pleading no contest in 20-16 to charges including felonious assault and aggravated arson.

As a result of the attack she lost both of her ears and two of her fingers and was left with open wounds on her back and buttocks.

Ms Malinowski, 33, sustained burns to 80pc of her body, and was bed-ridden in hospital for the two years after her attack, where she eventually died. He just stood there and did nothing.

Jury selection for the trial is scheduled to begin July 6.
Defense attorneys argued that the recorded testimony was a violation of Slager's right to confrontation; however, Judge Reece said the deposition was executed properly.
"She may be the only victim to testify in their own murder trial", Slager's defense attorney Mark Collins said, according to People Magazine.
Judy had given her testimony to prosecutors for the assault trial, and now the judge in the murder trial has allowed the tape to be admitted, throwing up the freakish situation in which the victim can now testify after her death.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
