A 54-year-old Doctor, George Scott Samson has murdered his wife and himself, shortly after their wedding reception at the Ohio Building in Terre Haute on Saturday evening.
According to Indystar, Samson got into an argument with his bride, 50-year old Kelly Ecker, in the presence of guests at their wedding party. The cause of the disagreement was believed to be the prenuptial agreement between the newly wedded pair.
The doctor reportedly screamed at her, saying, “You’ll never get your hands on my money.” After the dispute became intense, most of the guests decided to leave the wedding reception.
Less than five minutes later, Samson reportedly shot his wife in cold blood and subsequently shot himself.
Apparently, the bride, Ecker had dialled 911, but officers would arrive 30 minutes later at the couple’s Terre Haute home to find the body of Ecker, fatally shot in the head and neck and in the basement the body of Samson, who had taken his own life with a 45-caliber semi automatic pistol.
