Angie says she gave Leta a spare key to her apartment, and claims Leta gave Ralph a copy of the key. Angie is accusing Ralph of using the key to enter her apartment when she was away; scattering papers and leaving notes for her to find.
“I just thought ‘I will always be running from Ralph, for the rest of my life,’” says Angie. She claims Ralph even tried to scare away her husband, Rich, before they got married, so he could get custody of Hannah.
"That's 'cause you were such a God-awful mother," says Ralph. Pointing out he was never charged or convicted, Ralph denies ever abusing Angie or Hannah.
