In Rowlett, Texas, Juvenile Judge Belinda Loveland, 52, was shot and killed by her husband Richard Loveland, 59. Richard then texted his son, a doctor in Galveston, with the message “I think I just killed your mother.” According to police, he then shot himself.
Dr. Dustin Loveland received a message around 5 p.m: “I don’t know how to tell you this,” the message said, “but I think I just killed your mother.” He called the police immediately.
Judge Loveland was much loved and respected. She founded Camp ROCK, a mentoring program for junior high students. Kids were waiting for Loveland to arrive at Bowl-a-Rama Monday when the news came out that she had been murdered by her husband in a murder-suicide.
One can hardly imagine the feelings and pain of Dr. Loveland in not just losing one’s parents on the same day but to do so in a murder-suicide.
