Pastor Charged With Killing His Wife

Sent in from Mimi

Pennsylvania: A Pennsylvania pastor whose first wife died under suspicious circumstances was charged Monday with killing his second wife and staging a car accident to cover it up. The accusations have prompted police to re-examine the first wife's death.

Arthur Burton Schirmer, 62, was arraigned Monday in Tannersville on criminal homicide and evidence-tampering charges in the 2008 death of his 56-year-old wife Betty.

Betty Schirmer's death was initially ruled an accident, but police said they reopened the investigation after the November 2008 suicide of a man whose wife was having an affair with Arthur Schirmer.
