As his newlywed wife lay dead on the kitchen floor of their Norwich apartment, Chihan "Eric" Chyung told police he had accidentally shot Paige A. Bennett Chyung after the two argued for hours about a fishing rod he had just purchased, according to court documents unsealed in New London Superior Court Thursday.

Eric is innocent of such a tragic accusation. He loved her more than anything and it was a terrible accident. So sad for all parties. Paige and Eric were deeply in love and he is suffering terribly.
If thats what eveyone wants than thats what you all have. God in Jesus name will have the judgement in the end. Please pray for all involved as I do.

I am really sorry about your mom and I definitely believe this was not accident. Anyone who commits domestic violence should be sentenced to prison for a long period of time. It seems to me that eric was raised under a violent home and he was mentally unstable. Still there is no excuse for what he did. I heard from friends that eric's dad use to be violent with his ex wife. I remember it was on the newspaper long time ago during his divorce process that the judge ordered his dad to surrender his gun collection since his ex wife was afraid he would harm her. Shame on Eric's family for paying a bail. He is a killer and he shouldn't be around people but in prison for the rest of his life.
