In this article, you will get all the information regarding Shocking moment Family Feud star Timothy Bliefnick joked about hating marriage on show ‘3 years before killing wife’
A FAMILY Feud star joked about hating his marriage three years before allegedly killing his estranged wife in her home.
Timothy Bliefnick, 39, from Quincy Illinois has been accused of shooting Rebecca Bliefnick.
The 41-year-old was found dead in her home by a member of the family on February 23 after failing to collect her children from school.
Bliefnick was arrested on Monday and charged with the death of the nurse who suffered from multiple gunshot wounds.
Just three years prior to her death, he joked about regretting getting married when on Family Feud.
He was asked by host Steve Harvey what the most common answer is to a question about marriage.
The question was: “What’s the biggest mistake you made at your wedding.”
Before replying, Bliefnick addressed his wife through the cameras saying, “Honey, I love you.”
He then gave his answer to the question: “Said, ‘I do’?”
Harvey gave his signature shocked expression while the audience gasped at the response.
He has now been accused of gunning down the mother of his three children in her home.
The prosecution have called the death of Rebecca an “act of domestic violence.”
Assistant State’s Attorney Josh Jones said: ‘This is an act of domestic violence. Every victim needs to be seen, heard and believed.
‘While our thoughts and prayers are with Rebecca Bliefnick’s family and her children, our focus and efforts remain on bringing her murderer to justice.’
Bliefnick reportedly attended Rebecca’s wake but not the funeral, as he reportedly did not want to be a distraction.
The pair married in 2009 but were in the middle of divorce proceedings when Rebecca was killed.
The couple was reportedly separated for several years before Rebecca was shot, according to online court records obtained by KHQA, which the outlet discovered were removed, along with several other documents after a judge ordered them to be sealed.
Rebecca, or someone working on her behalf, also reportedly filed a restraining order against Timothy and then later one against her father-in-law, according to the now-deleted court records.
“Seeking an [order of protection] in a divorce is not uncommon gameplay in Adams County,” Timothy’s lawyer told Fox News.
“The state’s attorney’s office needs a narrative. It appears that domestic violence is that narrative.”
After that, Timothy reportedly filed his own restraining order against Rebecca, the now-deleted court records revealed.
Bliefnick was charged at the Adams County Courthouse on Tuesday with two counts of first-degree murder and home invasion.
He did not enter a plea.
Police arrested him 12 days after they searched his home on March 1.
“Given the circumstances, it is not surprising that the search warrant was issued and executed,” Timothy’s lawyer, Casey Schnack, told Muddy River News at the time.
“My only surprise is that it took this long to do,” Schnack said.
“It is just as important that QPD conduct such as investigation to rule Timothy OUT as a suspect so that investigative efforts can be spent elsewhere.”
