Man in gun rampage over breakfast row
Monday 13 September 2010
A man facing eviction over his hostile temper became enraged by how his wife cooked his eggs and killed her, his stepdaughter and three neighbours with a shotgun before shooting himself.
Stanley Neace, 47, killed the five people in two mobile homes in rural Kentucky, then went to his home and turned the gun on himself.
Neighbours in the roadside mobile home park said Neace stormed across the lawns of about seven homes in his pyjamas on Saturday and fired dozens of shots from a 12-gauge pump shotgun. When police arrived they heard a single gunshot and found Neace's body on his porch.
Sherri Anne Robinson, a relative of two of the victims, said witnesses told her that Neace became enraged when his wife, Sandra, did not cook his breakfast to his liking. When she fled to a neighbour's trailer, Neace followed and shot her and the others. She said he allowed a young girl to flee.
"He just got mad at his wife and he shot her," Ms Robinson said. "She tried to run to tell my family and he shot them too because they found out about it." She said Neace was known to have a violent history.
The victims were Ms Neace, 54; her daughter Sandra Strong, 28; and neighbours Dennis Turner, 31, Teresa Fugate, 30, and Tammy Kilborn, 40. Ms Fugate is Ms Robinson's sister, Ms Turner is her cousin and Ms Kilborn was a witness. Ms Robinson said Ms Fugate was shot in front of her seven-year-old daughter.
