"He just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him", CNN quoted her as saying on a television show.

"There would be times where I would be on the floor curled up, and having to protect my organs because he would be violently kicking me on my side", she said in the interview clips released by "Inside Edition".

"I was terrified, really terrified", Brennaman, 25, told Inside Edition's Steven Fabian.

"In a sane person's mind, when people say something like that you don't think it's something they're going to do", she said.

"He was really nice; he was amusing", she recalled.

Legal experts told Stars and Stripes another reason the Air Force could lose any lawsuits brought against it is its failure to enter Kelley's conviction potentially constitutes negligence, and lawsuits against the government claiming negligence are allowed to proceed in court.

A week before moving there, in April 2011, he married Brennaman, who had a 9-month-old son from another relationship.

Investigators have said Sunday's shooting appeared to stem from a domestic dispute involving Kelley and the mother of his second wife, and that he had sent threatening messages to her. As a staff sergeant, Edwards says she supervised Kelley.

"I told him that", she explained, "because at one point he told me that I was one of the only people... he could talk to that made him feel calm".

Kelley was also very secretive. I couldn't even breathe. "I found out he had a fake email and all these women were sending pictures of breasts and he was sending nasty correspondence back to them".

"He was like, 'You know, when I was 10 years old, I had a dog and it was play biting me and I snapped his neck and I thought it was really amusing, '" she said. 'I was thinking forward, and that was what was scaring me'.

Then came a violent argument that shattered the marriage.

In one startling incident, she said he even pulled out a gun and held it to her head as they drove along a desolate highway.

"And he took that gun out and he put it to my temple and said, 'Do you want to die?"

She said he told her, "I could just bury you somewhere here in the desert and nobody would ever find you". "Do you want to die?'" she said.

After Kelley served jail time for the assault and was discharged from the Air Force, Edwards said he reached out to her on Facebook to be a job reference. She thought it was due to an accident.

He then pointed the weapon at his own head and admitted to abusing her baby.

"I wanted to help him, and I really wanted him to succeed", said Edwards, who by that time was also out of the military.

She turned him into the police.

"He would choke me, punch me, kick me", she said.
