COUDERSPORT, Pa. (AP) – An elementary school music teacher has been jailed on charges that he walked into a north-central Pennsylvania church service and shot and killed his ex-wife.

The defense attorney for 52-year-old Gregory Eldred, of Coudersport, did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.

Eldred is charged with first-degree murder for Sunday’s shooting of 53-year-old Darlene Sitler, also of Coudersport.

Troopers from the Coudersport barracks did not immediately offer a description or explanation of the shooting at the First United Presbyterian Church where, the Bradford Era reports, Sitler served as organist and choir director.

Police say Eldred shot Sitler Sunday about 11:20 a.m. during a church service, but that nobody else was injured.

Others in the congregation grabbed Eldred and held him until police arrived.
