Amy Chatham Robinson is a software engineer, mother, wife, and sister, who lives in Norcross, Georgia. Amy’s sister, Nique (Dominque) Leili was killed by her husband, Matt Leili, on July 9, 2011. During their 13-year marriage, Matt Leili was not only verbally and physically abusive, but also reportedly used technology to track her every move.
Amy and her family miss Nique every day, and while nothing would be comparable to having her back, they do find solace that Gwinnett County was respectful of the family and determined to find justice for her murder.
