Polk County Sheriff's Office (LAKELAND, Fla.) — The Florida man who killed his wife and then went to a church to gun down a pair of pastors — including one who was kneeling in prayer — left behind notes indicating that his wife had been unfaithful, police documents indicate.
It was the second time Jeremiah Fogle, 57, has killed a spouse. He was charged with shooting a previous wife 25 years ago, but was allowed to plead to manslaughter and was sentenced to 10 years probation.
Fogle, who has been married about seven times and is a former church deacon, is being held without bail.
After Fogle was subdued following the Sunday shooting, he told authorities, "If you go to my house you will find a full confession and my wife." When asked if his wife was all right, Fogle stated, "She's dead."
Police went to Fogle's house one block away and found the body of Theresa Fogle, 56. She was shot under her chin and on the right side of her chest.
Several mysterious notes in the house suggested that Theresa Fogle may have cheated on her husband, or at least that her husband wanted it to appear that way.
