I love a good rom-com chick-flick.
This particular love story, though? Not so much.
It turns out a Kansas man, Joseph Nelson, who has been charged with shooting dead three people (including his one-year-old son), has married his crime’s only witness.
Nelson has been charged with killing his ex-girlfriend, 17-year old Bianca Fletcher, their one-year-old son and Fletcher’s new boyfriend on September 8 on a private residence. While Davis was present when the shootings took place, and provided an eyewitness account of events to police immediately after the event, her statements may now be redundant under the state’s spousal privilege law.
Supposedly aware of this legal loophole, the pair quickly wed on December 7, before prosecutors were granted permission by the court to formally interview Davis. On their wedding day, Nelson was in his jail cell, while up on a $1 million cash bond and facing three charges of first-degree murder.
Watch the Jackson County prosecutor detail the charges in triple homicide below (post continues after video).
