Police say an elementary school music teacher shot his ex-wife while she played the organ during a Sunday church service, then returned moments later to shoot her again and ensure she was dead before congregants stopped and grabbed him.

Those details are contained in a criminal complaint filed Monday against 52-year-old Gregory Eldred, of Coudersport.

He’s jailed without bond on first-degree murder and other charges stemming from the shooting at the First United Presbyterian Church of Coudersport, about 140 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

That’s where Eldred’s ex-wife, 53-year-old Darlene Sitler, was playing the organ when she was shot about 20 minutes into the service.
