Sheila's murder has left her young child to grow up without her Mother in her life

Sheila and her boyfriend, Bernardo Barraza had been out together. They returned to their residence, where Shurtz disagreed with Barraza's habit of sleeping with a gun because they each had a child.

He initially reported that she accidentally shot herself in the neck, then told police that the shooting was accidental while he attempted to prove the safety of the weapon.

Shurz' stepfather told the media that Barraza was abusive and "She would flat out say that, 'One day he's going to kill me.'"
