Governor Laura Kelly has signed a bill into law that protects victims of domestic violence.

The law is named "Kristin's Law" after Kristin Florio, who died in October 2018 after a murder-suicide at the hands of Randy Gile. Authorities say Gile killed Florio after he was released from jail, after Florio thought he was still behind bars for attacking her and making threats.

The law will require victims of domestic violence to be notified if their accused attacker is released from jail.
