In 2017 Michelle Horton‘s sister Nicole Addimando was arrested for shooting and killing her husband. Despite voluminous evidence that he had been abusive, Addimando received a lengthy prison sentence. In her new book “Dear Sister: A Memoir of Secrets, Survival, and Unbreakable Bonds” Horton writes about taking over the care of her sister’s children while fighting to get that sentence reduced. She speaks with Robin Young about the book.
