CLEARWATER— A woman who survived a brutal stabbing by her ex-boyfriend will share her story on national television Saturday.
Melissa Dohme was a 20-year-old college student when Robert Lee Burton Jr. stabbed her 32 times outside her home near Crest Lake Park in January 2012. Burton is serving a life sentence.
Dohme survived and emerged as an advocate for domestic violence victims.
In a brief online preview of the 48 Hours episode, Dohme describes going outside her home to give Burton a final hug and then hearing his switchblade knife click into place before the stabbing began.
The episode will air at 10 p.m. on CBS.
