Women’s shoes covered one side of the broad steps leading to the Tarrant County Courthouse’s east entrance Tuesday morning — one pair for each woman in Texas killed in 2012 by someone who had been an intimate partner.
Among the 114 pairs of adult shoes were five pairs of little ones to represent the children who died with the women. Zonta Club of Fort Worth arranged the exhibit to build awareness, member Lynn Sudbury said.
