Christopher Snow, 31, is charged with stabbing Casey Allen on April 15. The couple had a baby boy last December.
“How could you do this? It’s so confusing,” Allen's sister, Tiffany Agee, told Fox News.
Snow reportedly tried to explain some of it to his aunt. She told Gainesville Police that he claimed to have a fight with Allen, then couldn't find his wife.
Agee told WXIA-TV that she learned the news from Allen's first husband.
“He said, 'Casey is dead.' And I just... threw my phone and I started screaming,” Agee recalled.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Snow was arrested Wednesday, April 19, days after crashing his car into the median along Interstate 85 southwest of Gainesville. Police suspect it was a suicide attempt.
