What started as a promise of “happily ever after” ended in tragedy.
An Indiana-based anesthesiologist fatally shot his wife and himself, minutes after their wedding reception, following a violent, alcohol-fueled argument about their pre-nuptial agreement, Daily Mail reports.
The argument reportedly started at the reception. Guests overheard the groom, 54-year-old George Scott Samson, telling his wife, 50-year-old Kelly Ecker, that she would “never get her hands on his money.”
Their conversation got even more heated when the wedding party moved from the reception venue to the couple’s residence.
Feeling uncomfortable with the situation, guests left their residence at 1:17 a.m on Sunday morning.
Sources say that three minutes after the last guest left, Ecker began making calls to 911, stating that her husband was trying to kill her.
Moments later, Samson shot Ecker in the head and neck, killing her. Thereafter, he shot himself dead.
Emergency authorities arrived at their residence shortly after the incident. Ecker’s body was found in her 10-year-old son’s bedroom.
