The suspect, Gary Tidwell, posted on the social media site about how many times he shot 54-year-old Lucy Brewer, according to WKRN. He also posted a suicide note.

Investigators found Brewer dead inside the home. Her husband, Earl Brewer, was also shot, though he is expected to recover.

The Brewers were described as being well-loved in the community, WKRN reported. Earl is a well-known musician in the area.

It's not Tidwell's first run-in with police. In 2006, Tidwell was charged with second-degree murder and sentenced to 17 years for shooting another man in Nashville.

He has now been charged with one count of criminal homicide, one count of attempted criminal homicide and one count of felon in possession of a firearm.

Tidwell has been booked into the Hickman County Jail, where he is being held without bond.
