Ex-Sheriff’s Deputy Accused Of Fatally Shooting Wife For Smoking Marijuana
[su_right_ad]Tom Fallis, a former sheriff’s deputy in Weld County, Colorado, is accused of killing his wife for smoking weed.
Fallis is accused of killing his wife, Ashley, during an argument in the early morning hours of Jan. 1, 2012.
Fallis and Ashley were having a party at their home on New Year’s when she informed him that she was going outside to “have a smoke,” which he believed to be marijuana, said the indictment.
After all the guests departed, Fallis continued arguing with his wife and allegedly grabbed a handgun, which he held “to the right side of Ashley’s head and pulled the trigger,” states the indictment.
“While still in contact with Ashley, he lowered Ashley to the floor, began holding her head, and called 911 to report that Ashley shot herself in the head,” added the indictment.
Ashley’s death was ruled a suicide in 2012, but Evans Police Chief Rick Brandt told 7 NEWS that while Ashley’s death was investigated correctly, new information was brought to his attention in April that required her case to be reopened.[su_csky_ad]
