This woman was a great mother, and an extremely kind lady. She loved all children, but especially her own. She coached softball, and cheerleading and was always there to help out. Anyone who can be crude and ugly about such a tragady clearly has no business opening their mouths. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.

I heard that this guy was a off duty cop, left his gun by the pool... not seeing this info here. Either way, sounds fishy and if he is a cop, he will walk. What nut leaves a service weapon next to a pool? sheesh, cops are dumb!

Well, you can't speak for all cops. There are many brave men and women who serve and protect that are highly intelligent human beings. They sacrifice their lives even for people like you who say, "cops are dumb." I'm not quite sure where you got your information from, but "the guy" isn't a cop. Cops "police officers" work for the police department.....this guy didn't. Make sure your facts are straight before you start bashing someone. And until you put your life on the line day in and day out, I wouldn't say a word.

Not everyone in law enforcement is dumb, just the one here that left his gun at the poolside for his drunken brother in law to pick it up and shoot his own sister.

Never heard of an "accident" resulting in a manslaughter charge. Tarrant county medical examiner put homicide on her death certificate. Guess if Aric wasnt so drunk and acting so stupid this wouldnt have happened. He knows that Chester (the deputy) carries a real gun and then flips out when it shoots a real bullet, whatever. Anyway my thoughts are with the husband and the poor kids left without their mom sadly due to big time negligence on a couple of people. Very sad.

I have know both sides of the family for many years. Keli and Aric were very close. All happens for a reason. The lord always works in mysterious ways. He needed her upstairs and this was her time. The family is in the healing process right now and do not need any comments except for positive ones.

One more thing, "Mr Bad Azz Biff Tanner" I dare you to bring your butt into Sweetwater making stupid jokes like that. You would get your faced danced on by the whole town. She touched so many and was always a tru person!

RIP Kelli, we will miss you!!!!

I happen to know aric personally. there is a big difference between drunk and drinking. I have been around him for both sides and never once has he ever even thought about violence especially towards his family. Aric and Keli were close. As for the whole "homicide" ruling why don't you know the family and learn the facts. Not everything you read is true. the family and close friends know what really happened. This is a tragedy for both Keli's husband and children, and her family. Aric will have to deal with this for the rest of his life. You can't judge people. You can't just blame one person it was a bad decision on both parts. Yes eli being a sherrif deputy shouldn't have had the gun on the table in first place, and no Aric shouldn't have picked it up. No one can change what has happened to this family, but we can pray for them and help them in anyway possible. This family needs support right now not people that don't even know them running their mouths about the situation. If you have a heart at all give them a break they are laying Keli to rest tomorrow. Keli we miss you and Aric those who know you, Know you didn't mean for this to happen. We love Aric and Keli!!!
As far as everyone who has nothing good to say keep your mouth's shut and quit judging cause only God can judge people!!!
