A Florida man allegedly killed his 33-year-old childhood sweetheart and wife in their home and then tried to take his own life, all for their two young grandchildren, after he went to Facebook to accuse her of cheating.
Eddie Harris is said to have killed his wife Shanica Harris by shooting her in their Liberty house on Saturday night.
In the past week, Eddie posted various disturbing statuses on Facebook that accused his wife of being unfaithful. Last week, Shanica went to Facebook to show off the new silver Mercedes that Eddie had bought for her, but complained that it wasn't red.
On Saturday, Eddie shared several reports that Shanica had brought her boyfriend into their home with the addition: & # 39; Shanica Harris, she tried to kill me & # 39 ;.
