An Illinois man has killed his second wife after serving 13 years for killing his first, the Chicago Tribune reports. Richard Wiley, who gunned down Kathryn Wiley-Motes with a Civil War replica rifle this weekend, then murdered his 17-year-old stepson and turned the rifle on himself. Wiley-Motes married Wiley months after he got out of prison 9 years ago, dismissing concerns from the minister who married them.
"I have played out every scenario that I can possibly think of, and I think I can deal with it," Motes, a student pastor, had told the reverend before the wedding. Wiley-Motes was a secretary at a church Wiley attended since childhood. "Did she think she could help him?" the minister asked. "When you have that kind of pastoral spirit, let's face it, we're caregivers, we're helpers."
