A trial will take place in April for a former member of the Seattle Seahawks who is charged with felony domestic violence. Chad Wheeler was arraigned this week. Authorities accuse him of violently attacking his girlfriend in their Kent apartment last month. It's the topic of this week's conversation between KNKX sports commentator Art Thiel and Morning Edition host Kirsten Kendrick. (Warning: Details of this story are disturbing.)
