Neighbor Ivan Sucic told The Herald Sun. Mrs. Broadbent and her partner, the father of her three children, had been living in the area for a few years.
He said there were never any problems with the couple, but saw a man leave the house before he & # 39; jumped in the car, slammed the door when he went in & # 39 ;.
Mr Sucic said he heard Mrs. Broadbent yelling, and minutes later he saw the two daughters of the couple standing in front of the house while a man in a dark hoodie ran off the stage.
The two girls reportedly stay with their grandmother.
