Amato says that shooting her with a shotgun in the face "was an accident" and "he never intended to hurt her at all." He says his client hopes to reunite with Connie when he’s out of jail in 2011.
“I believe Tom wants to be with her, yes…" Amato says. "He still loves her.”
Thomas told Amato that he is aware of Connie’s near-total face transplant and he has seen photos of the results. "He’s happy for her. He told me she looked beautiful, he was glad for her.”
Amato also says that Thomas struggles with what he has done to his wife, who has publicly forgiven him. “It’s a struggle for him every day."
We can't even imagine. Either living with it or forgiving the person who did it.
