"It's been an impossible situation for a month and I've seen some things and gone through some things that I'd never wish upon my worst enemy.

Justin Pivec, a 33-year-old Chicago resident, was arrested on July 2 and charged with "aggravated battery causing great bodily harm" to Leone and for battery against his 29-year-old wife.
