I think it was the morning she was killed or the day before she was killed saying, 'I'll love you forever.'"
She said at Berks Women in Crisis people were cheering when they heard the manhunt for Miguel Torres ended in Italy.
"You heard about him every now and then, but it didn't seem hopeful that they would find him," said Gilfillan, "So, I think people were surprised at the level of emotion that they felt."
And in that emotion there was also sadness for Barbie Torres.
"It's sad to remember, her life, 31 years old," said Gilfillan, "It's just sad to remember she had to lose her life."
Miguel Torres shot and killed his wife execution-style outside the former Wachovia Bank where she worked on North 6th Street in downtown Reading on Sept. 12, 2005, police said.
Torres is now in the custody of Italian authorities, awaiting extradition to the United States on murder charges, said officials with the U.S. Marshals Service.
Barbie Torres' family said it's been an emotional seven years. Cathy LeBron said she would be ready to speak once she knows Miguel Torres is back on American soil.
