A husband and father of three from Texas is facing murder charges in the deadly shooting of his wife.
According to NBCDFW, on Sunday (Oct. 18), police in Mesquite, Texas—a suburban city located near Dallas—discovered the body of 28-year-old Markeita McCleary with multiple gunshot wounds around 5:34 p.m. local time.
Police said McCleary was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
McCleary’s husband, Ashton Neroes, who is also 28, was subsequently arrested and charged with murder in connection to the shooting, police said. He’s being held on $100,000 bond.
According to unconfirmed social media reports, Markeita had recently caught Ashton having an affair, and asked him for a divorce shortly before she was fatally shot 10 times in front of their three children.
Ashton and Markeita were very active on Facebook, and news of the murder came as a shock to those who knew the couple and viewed them as a picture-perfect family on social media.
In addition to sharing photos of their family, Ashton also frequently posted inspirational messages and Christian scripture.
And in another post on Facebook, which Ashton shared less than an hour before Markeita was found by police suffering from multiple gunshots wounds, he eerily wrote: “Never GOT CLOSURE but I’ll walk away a winner regardless”
