Beck’s wife, Jodi Beck, 35, and the couple’s two children, ages 7 and 11, were also present at the house at the time of the incident.
Respondents gave Eccles first aid until the ambulance arrived and took him to Marion General Hospital. He was later flown in critical condition to a hospital in Fort Wayne.
During the investigation, the police discovered that Robert and Jodi Becks had divorced earlier today.
The tormented husband had left the couple’s house and later returned to find Eccles in the bedroom with his estranged wife.
Beck, who had previously left home, returned to find Eccles in a bedroom with his wife.
“A confrontation took place and Beck shot Eccles with a .380 caliber pistol,” said a police press release.
On-site officers recovered the weapon and arrested Beck on charges of a crime-compounded battery. His bond was set at $ 30,005.
