    LA - Pastor Ronald Harris, 53, shot to death in his Lake Charles church, 27 Sept 2013

    http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/28/us/lou...html?hpt=hp_t2

    "Bond is set at $1 million for a Louisiana man accused of shooting and killing a church pastor as he preached in Lake Charles, Louisiana, on Friday night.
    Calcasieu Parish sheriff's deputies arrested 53-year-old Woodrow Karey, a church deacon, and charged him with second-degree murder, after he called 911 and told the dispatcher what he had done, sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Myers said..."


    Mods please merge if there is another thread about the same.

    Checking for other msm sites as to possible motive.

    Says here the perp was a deacon.... so they did know each other.
    Sad way to go for the pastor.

    Have been looking around on MSM and cannot find any kind of motive.

    Still no word on motive.
    Sounds like a perp who let things fester.....

    Still a puzzle why the deacon was angry. There's usually 'more to the story' , but sounds like the pastor was well-liked .

    Sheriff: Suspect's Wife Filed Rape Charge Against Pastor Before Shooting

    http://abcnews.go.com/US/sheriff-sus...ry?id=20424642

    He said authorities have seen text messages exchanged between Woodrow Karey's wife and Pastor Ronald J. Harris Sr., and hope obtaining more phone records will shed light on the relationship between the pair.
    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    Thanks Elley Mae!
    Rape? Wow, I imagined someone upset over an overlooked deacon position.
    Say.

    Sounds as if we have a possible motive.
    Wonder if it started as an affair and went 'south' ?
    Still a sad way to handle things. Yes, the "perp" (if he was one) is deceased ; but you 'lose' your own life as well !!

    No pastor should be texting women unless it's an emergency. There may have been no relationship other than helping the woman though.

    Surely sounds like it "went south" when her husband found out!

    First time I have read the story but I saw the headline a few times and every time I thought "He must have been sexing up someone some way or how and it backfired".

    When I read the article before it was posted here I too thought OK how long will this take to unfold into a who is messing with who story.

    o/t I live on a dead end rd that is a mile long with only 3 residents and on Sunday evenings after services the preacher from one of the many churches in the area meets a woman about 3/4 of the way down the rd. Been doing it for years, or so I've been told.

    Sure hope the wife of the shooter was being truthful. If not, she should be questioned and possibly arrested. jmo.

    From what's being reported, it appears to me wife only accused pastor of rape after her hubby accused her of having sex with the pastor.
    Just my opinion

    From the link mentioned in a post above ( http://www.cnn.com/2013/10/01/us/lou...html?hpt=hp_t2 )
    "Karey told authorities that a week earlier he'd found text messages from his wife to the pastor. He believed, Mancuso said, that they were having sex and he confronted his wife. Days after the confrontation, Karey's wife filed the police report accusing the pastor of rape, Mancuso said. Authorities had not yet investigated the rape accusation by Karey's wife. "We had not had an opportunity yet," Mancuso said. "Before we go to an accuser, we like to get the facts straight before we begin questioning."

    This ought to be interesting. I imagine the texts will reveal the true nature of their relationship

    Karey indicted on lesser charge in shooting death of Lake Charles pastor

    On Thursday afternoon, a Calcasieu Parish grand jury indicted Woodrow Karey Jr. for manslaughter instead of the second-degree murder charge he was originally booked for.

    Pastor's family disagrees with manslaughter indictment

    Harris's daughter Talisha Jacko says the family disagrees that manslaughter is the appropriate charge and wishes they would have been allowed to testify before the grand jury.

    "Manslaughter would be like a crime of passion, but in our statements to the detectives we did state that he was laughing when he walked through. The first shot he was laughing and when he shot him at close range he was also laughing," said Jacko.

    District Attorney John DeRosier won't discuss the facts of the case but says the grand jury saw the evidence.

    "They heard all of the evidence and made their decision based on the evidence

    A judge has granted a motion to quash the second-degree murder indictment against Woodrow Karey, the man accused of fatally shooting a Lake Charles pastor in 2013...

    Karey was first indicted on a manslaughter charge but a different grand jury came back with second-degree murder.

    In his ruling, Davis said both the prosecution and defense had agreed to "live with the result of the initial grand jury -- either manslaughter or second-degree murder."
