Face of domestic violence campaign says police didn't listen

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The face of a Memphis domestic violence campaign says Memphis police didn't take her situation seriously until she began appearing in a public service announcement.

Whitney Wood tells The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/1U2LKAS) police finally filed an aggravated assault charge against her ex-husband in November, nearly three years after she told officers he threw her into a wall and strangled her into unconsciousness in January 2013.

Prosecutors and police attribute the failure to charge Wood's ex-husband earlier to a miscommunication.

Ex-husband Shawn Graves referred questions to his attorney, William Nowlin, who said more information would come out in court.

Wood says she believes the "Memphis Says No More" campaign can do good, but officials need to invest resources in investigation and in ensuring police take domestic violence cases seriously.
