Crime doesn't depend on skin color - I don't know what even made you relate the two from this story . Have some respect and stop making everything about RACE.

My condolences to the family members of the victim .

Or the murder could have been provoked by gossip invented by someone trying to guess at what was going on in the home ......

I say shoot them jail is to easy. Give them a dose of their own medicine. They took a life take theirs. If she was not happy with him she should have just left instead of them killing him. It is to many murders and shootings and robberies etc. its time to start doing something about it. Do them like they use to back in the days. No matter what the circumstances was between them he didnt deserve to die. LET THEM SEE WHAT A BULLET FEELS LIKE.

Whatever happened to "Innocent untill proven guilty"? So many are charged with crap they didn't do these days just to make certain others jobs easier ......

Smarty-Pantz, the troll

The wife shot her husband eight times with a .22 rifle, took his money, disposed of the rifle, which is now in the hands of law enforcement. Just how guilty does a criminal have to get. Do you realize how painful the first seven .22 shots were before the man was finally shot in the head as a coup de grace???

Burn her at the stake, I'll provide popcorn and drinks for the gathering.

This whole this is devastating enough. It is very upsetting to read a lot of these comments. Nobody truly knows what happened yet. We should not judge. Prayers need to be said for the children more than there is name calling. Being in this town, I have heard that the husband molested the one of the daughters. That is enough to make someone snap. Although, it does not excuse murder by any means. We all have our own problems, so we need to focus more on those and not putting others down. It is in God's hands not ours. He shall judge not us. Just pray for those precious children. My heart breaks for this family.

Wow ...Can you imagine what the child is going through if this is true ? First molested , then her dad shot dead , and her mother in jail ? The child is certainly in my prayers , and I'm hoping the rumor is false .

I guess it would be a motive to shoot the hell out of him though , in a moment of rage . 7 times with a rifle - he must have done something to REALLY upset her ....

SmartyPantz,

There are four daughters not just one child, now who is going to nurture, raise and educate this couple's four daughters. This is one of the most senseless crimes ever.

A .22 long rifle shell only has about 100 foot pounds of energy and is normally non-fatal unless the shot is to the heart or brain, that's why she shot him so many times. Bad judgement to shoot him in the first place. Bad judgement as to where to shot him, then she finally placed a fatal shot to the head/brain.

I am Mary's Sister in law. I can only tell you that Mary thought her daughter was being sexual abused by KEN. Mary was sexually abused twice as a girl and swore she would not let her kids go through all that she had to endure. I am NOT saying KEN did or did not do this to the girls but I am told that mary THOUGHT her daughter was being sexually abused. What lengths would you go to protect your children? People say it was for the money but in Mary's case Ken was worth more money wise alive then dead. As far as I know Wes and Mary where not involved will know more later.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
