PHOENIX -- Domestic violence expert Sgt. Dan Rincon and crisis intervention specialist Tracey Wilkinson talked about signs of potential domestic violence -- including isolation, confusing jealousy for love, changes in behavior and unexplained injuries -- and also offered some resources for those who might be in dangerous situations.
