AL - Teresa Welsh, 46, shot to death, Baldwin County, 15 June 2008
Another murder on Father's Day. David Mumford aged 67 of Foley, Alabama shot and killed his wife in front of their 14 year old son.
It seems Mumford got angry when he found out his wife, Theresa Ann Walsh was going to leave him. A fight ensued and nutter goes and shoots his own wife in front of their teen, and kills her. At one point this mom used pepper spray to try and subdue her angry husband, but it was to no avail. The poor kid knocked the gun out of his father's hands and the two wrestled on the lawn.
A father in prison for murdering your mother. The boy and another teen son who had been home at the time were released to an older brother.

Good Lord!! Thank God they had an older brother to be released to and won't be stuck in the foster system. They're going to need a lot of therapy to get through this one.

From June 2010:
A Baldwin County judge sentenced a 69-year-old Foley man to life in prison Friday in connection with the 2008 shooting death of his wife, and added a year for an attack on the couple's 14-year-old son after the killing...
A jury took less than an hour in April to convict David Mumford of murder in the case, and of domestic violence for choking his son after killing the teen's mother in front of him...
Mumford told police after the killing that he didn't mean to kill his wife, who was shot once in the back and twice in the head.
