[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]

    Man, and I thought the episode of of That 70’s show where Eric got busted for smoking weed in the basement was harsh!

    Jeez the boozed up gun nut needed some weed to mellow out his New Year’s misogyny.

    Willing to bet my mod privileges that it had nothing to do with weed. He would have found a “reason” to kill her regardless.

      I agree. If the story is accurate, this was just the straw that broke the camel’s back.

      Too right. And as if smoking a joint warrants an execution.
      Hope the bastard pays the ultimate price.

    Her death was ruled a suicide in 2012?
    Sounds like a police cover-up that was exposed by some tenacious person.
    Curious indeed.

    Was wondering why it took the constabulary almost 3 years to act

    It’s a couple years late to check for gun powder residue on his hand.

    LOL you don’t fingerprint a gun as part of regular procedure? Answer, they do…when it’s not a police officer in question.
