COLLIER COUNTY, Fla.- "I've never felt very comfortable with her. I brought that up to my ex husband when he was alive."
An emotional plea to a Collier County Judge. A mother, begs for a restraining order, to keep Naples Police Sergeant Amy Young away from her children.
"I would like for you to help protect my kids," said Nina Diaz-Monroig.
Nina Diaz-Monroig filed the petition, saying Young is a threat to her kids.
"And I'm protecting my children. The people who didn't have a voice that night, that's my job as their mother."
That night was July 9th. Detectives said Luis David Monroig died and Young was critically injured in a domestic shooting at their Estero home. Diaz-Monroig claims her kids were there when the shooting took place.
"And instead burying one person I could have possibly buried 2 or 3and all I'm asking for is help to protect my kids."
For the first time Wednesday WINK News saw Amy Young and her significant facial injuries in court. She sat quietly, showing little emotion, shaking her head a few times. Her face swollen and scarred, even split between her left cheek and ear.
The Lee County Sheriff's Office said detectives are now waiting for test results to come back, we don't know what kind, as the investigation moves forward. The State Attorney's Office also confirms it will review the case.
In court Wednesday, a judge dismissed that petition saying there's no evidence Amy Young is a danger to those children.
