Couple’s marriage unraveled long before husband killed wife and friends in Plano mass shooting

“We just had this fire, this chemistry,” Spencer told a friend about his attraction to Meredith.

Records show the couple got married in Collin County in September 2011. They exchanged ceremonial vows during a Caribbean cruise the following year.

Spencer started out as a loving husband, Lane said. Meredith documented those happy first years on Instagram: the concerts, the home-cooked meals, the Game of Thrones watching sessions.

“Pretty much what I live for,” she wrote under a selfie with Spencer in early 2015.

But Lane said she and her husband noticed something was off with Spencer. When they visited the couple, he would retreat to his room and to his computer. It wasn’t until later, she said, that the Lanes discovered he had a drinking problem.

Guns, knives and swords

A friend of Spencer, who briefly dated him and asked to remain anonymous because of her fear of social media attacks, described a free-spirited guy who loved dogs, art and

Second arrest made years after Coral Spring man killed

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. – It’s been six years since the killing of Michael Hamilton, a man who was found dead in his Coral Springs apartment in what was described by police as a bloody crime scene.

Cathy Hamilton and her husband now have a sense of closure amid the news that police have now nabbed two men in connection with her son’s murder.

“Losing a loved one to murder is never easy, and all those involved want to bring justice for the family of the victim. I am so grateful that we have two arrests in Michael’s case,” Cathy Hamilton said. “They are no longer among us, and they are now behind bars.”

Mother and sons killed in ‘horrific’ quadruple Gentilly shooting; daughter, 12, in serious condition

Residents on a quiet Gentilly street awoke Friday to a gruesome scene — a quadruple shooting that left a young mother and her two sons dead, with her 12-year-old daughter in serious condition at the hospital.

The shooting occurred before dawn, when New Orleans police officers were dispatched to a tan brick home in the 4200 block of Touro Street.
