Ex-wife speaks out on Texas church gunman's violence

Ex-wife speaks out on Texas church gunman's violence

Ms Brennaman also said that her ex-husband threatened to kill and members of her family.

Now, his ex-wife has come forward to describe life with the maniac.

She went on to say that Kelley had a lot of "demons or hatred" inside of him. "And we would say, 'Wait, that's not amusing'". In an interview, the heroic civilian said that he's glad that he had his assault rifle, adding that if he had gone after Kelley with a pistol, it would have been futile.

Tessa Brennaman, the former wife of the gunman behind the deadliest shooting in Texas history. "It was problem after problem".

The Air Force should then have flagged Kelley again later that year after his court-martial conviction for assault, which permanently disqualified him from legally getting a gun. "It was problem after problem", Edwards was quoted as saying in the report.

"I think plaintiffs have a strong case that could prevail against potential challenges from the government", Schuck said.

"He didn't even blink - he just stared", she said.

Afterwards, Kelley would warn her against seeking help.

Before the church is demolished, it will serve as a temporary memorial, said Rod Green, who also serves as the grounds steward for the church. "Before I unfriended him, I gave him my number".

But their conversations made Edwards increasingly uncomfortable.


In 2015, Edwards said Kelley became obsessed with Dylann Roof, the white gunman who killed nine black people in a Charleston, S.C. church.

"He would say 'Isn't it cool?" "He would say he wished he had the nerve to do it, but all he would be able to do is kill animals".

In August 2014, Kelley was charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty. He pled guilty, but got off by paying fees.

After Sunday's shooting in Texas, Edwards got a text from a friend: "Jessika-it was Kelley". Those times are "very hard to talk about", she said.

After cutting off communication with Kelley, Edwards deleted their conversations and wrote the experience off as Kelley "talking weird like he always did". "Do you want to die?'"

After the shooting, Edwards told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the messages in hopes they can be recovered from Kelley's Facebook account.

"I told him, 'If you ever are thinking about hurting yourself or someone else, just call'".

"It's upsetting because you feel like we failed", Edwards said.
