A Trinidadian woman, living with her husband and three children in Clarksville, Tennessee was shot and killed by her husband in a domestic dispute.
After he shot Daria Paulina Best-Luck several times, with the children in the house, Benjamin Luck called 911 on Tuesday afternoon.
He has since been charged with criminal homicide and denied bail. The children have been placed with relatives.
The Leaf Chronicle is reporting that “according to an arrest warrant, Luck said he was having a domestic dispute with his wife and she told him she would kill him. “He got a gun and she got a knife. “Fearing for his life, (Luck) shot Mrs. Best-Luck multiple times,” the warrant states. “But even after the first volley of fire, he kept shooting at her back, because he told deputies he did not know if she still had the knife or if she was “an imminent threat to him as she was moving away from him,” the warrant states. “The defendant stated that he observed Mrs. Best-Luck as she collapsed on the couch and did not see a knife in her hands and he shot her again as she was lying there.” (Photo: Leaf Chronicle and the Best Family)
