Man kills wife at New Jersey church
The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that a California man drove across the country and shot his estranged wife, killing her.
27-year-old Joseph M. Pallipurath confronted his wife, 24-year-old Reshma James at the St. Thomas Syrian Orthodox Knanaya Church in Clifton, New Jersey at the end of the service.
A witness said she saw the confrontation and went to get help when she heard gun shots.
Police said Pallipurath fatally shot his wife and also shot two others in the head.
The other two victims are reported to be in critical condition.
Police Detective Capt. Robert Rowan said James had come to New Jersey to escape her abusive marriage to Pallipurath, and had filed a restraining order against him.
