American victim of apparent domestic violence. Her ex-husband is charged with her murder after he reportedly ran over her twice with his Ford Explorer SUV on Monday February 16, 2004 in her Halifax, MA driveway. Shirley died the following day after her family decided to take her off life support. The son, Joseph Jr., along with his younger sister, heard the screech of the tires. The senior Garuti ordered their 12-year-old son to perform CPR on his fatally wounded mother. He told the children that the SUV was at fault, but later admitted to police “I snapped.” Shirley Garuti taught Spanish and French at Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston, MA. Joseph Sr. faces murder charges and was held on $500,000 bail. He was convicted on March 14, 2006 and given a life sentence.
