Johnson then put his girlfriend in the closet after she told him that if he killed her, her daughter would not have anyone to care for her. The little girl was sleeping during this whole time.

"Some of the stuff she do not remember," she said. "Because she got hit in the head -  and no telling what's she's going through in her mind. So I think she's trying to forget it - but it's kind of hard to forget."

This friend said both the girlfriend and her daughter are going through counseling to deal with the stress and trauma from the deadly attack. She said, her friend does plan to testify. 

The District Attorney is trying to determine if there is enough evidence and grounds to seek the death penalty in this case.
