TX - Russell, 50, & Kimberly Dunnachie, 20, shot to death, Arlington, 10 Dec 2014
Officers were dispatched to the 2500 block of Edinburgh Street about 2 p.m after a man called to say Veronica Dunnachie had just shot Russell Dunnachie, 50, and Kimberly Dunnachie, 20, according to a search warrant affidavit.
Kimberly Dunnachie died of gunshot wounds to the head and chest, according to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner. Russell Dunnachie’s cause of death has not yet been released.
After the shooting, Veronica Dunnachie, 35, called a friend to tell him she “had just done something bad” and “couldn’t be helped this time as she had just shot her husband,” according to the affidavit.
Arlington police say a man and his adult daughter were found dead at a home Wednesday and the man's wife, who drove herself to a mental health hospital that afternoon, has been arrested in connection with their slayings...
Veronica Dunnachie's cousin Elizabeth Rojas told NBC 5 that Veronica sent two of her younger children to school and dropped her youngest off with the babysitter that morning before the victims were fatally shot. Police confirmed that all four of Veronica Dunnachie's children are safe.
The suspect has been involved in area open-carry activities and has this quotation on her Facebook page: “Sometimes removing some people out of your life makes room for better people.” Her profile photo shows her aiming a gun...
Veronica Dunnachie was recently ordered to vacate the couple’s home before the end of the month, according to their divorce documents.
She and her husband had temporary restraining orders against each other that were issued last month, according to Tarrant County court documents.

The affidavit indicates Veronica and her husband were going through a bad divorce.
The Gillums say Kimberly recently moved in to help take care of three other children living in the home.
"There was three young kids, 3, 6 and 8 that she's cooking them dinner, helping them with their homework, getting them ready for school, putting money in their lunch account and that's the situation that she was in. Just helping her dad through a divorce," Mike said.
05-16-2016, 04:36 PM #3An Arlington woman who shot and killed her husband and his 20-year-old daughter was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Friday.
Veronica Dunnachie, 36, was arrested in December 2014 in the deaths of Russ Dunnachie, 50, and Kimberly Dunnachie. They were found in Russ Dunnachie’s home in the 2500 block of Edinburgh Street in Arlington by patrol officers who were making a welfare check, according to court records.
Dunnachie, an open-carry advocate, pleaded guilty last week. Her attorney said Dunnachie’s easy access to firearms likely played a role in the fatal shootings.
