Family members tell us Juanita Kinsey is underwent a second surgery Wednesday. Police are still searching for her husband, Timothy Kinsey, who they say poured gasoline on her and set her on fire. Juanita's fourteen year old son Timarcus is also recovering. He was burned trying to put out the flames on his mom. Lawmen released the 911 tapes Wednesday. We chose not air the call from Timarcus on which you can hear his mother in the background, without Juanita's permission. But another 911 call from that tragic night is a painful example of the fear and devastation violence brings.
911: Lenoir County 911.
Caller: 911, come to Lincoln.

Timarcus's hands are expected to be okay, and he was released from the hospital earlier this week. We'll keep you posted on Juanita's recovery. She works at a domestic violence shelter in Kinston.
