State Rep. Janine Boyd (D-Cleveland Heights) will hold a press conference Tomorrow, Tuesday, February 5 at 1:00 p.m. in the Harding Senate Press Room at the Ohio Statehouse to announce the introduction of Aisha’s Law, a bill to reform Ohio’s domestic violence laws.
The bill is named for Aisha Fraser, a former Shaker Heights sixth-grade teacher who was brutally murdered by her ex-husband, former state Rep.

Boyd’s bill would help prevent situations like Aisha’s by better identifying high-risk situations that oftentimes lead to further violence.
