PA Man Shoots, Kills Ex at Church Service
COUDERSPORT, Pa. (AP) -- An elementary school music teacher has been jailed on charges that he walked into a north-central Pennsylvania church service and shot and killed his ex-wife.
The defense attorney for 52-year-old Gregory Eldred, of Coudersport, did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.
Eldred is charged with first-degree murder for Sunday's shooting of 53-year-old Darlene Sitler, also of Coudersport.
Troopers from the Coudersport barracks did not immediately offer a description or explanation of the shooting at the First United Presbyterian Church where, the Bradford Era (http://bit.ly/YH01tE ) reports, Sitler served as organist and choir director.
Police say Eldred shot Sitler Sunday about 11:20 a.m. during a church service, but that nobody else was injured.
Others in the congregation grabbed Eldred and held him until police arrived.
