She knew him 4 months. With domestic violence it is hard to tell if or when it might become fatal. Some people never get an incident which would warn them it might become fatal. Some get only one warning incident. For some it becomes chronic, and only time will tell if or when it might become fatal.
For anyone who may have received a warning incident in their relationship, please listen to your instincts. If you felt scared- you need to get out. Consider yourself lucky that you got the warning.
