Sometimes even pastors commit crimes. If you want to learn about the priests who killed their wives, read this article!
According to Vanessa Bulls, a former Baptist preacher Matt Baker told her how he was going to get rid of his wife and tried to make it look like it was suicide. It is a pastor who killed his wife in Texas.
There was a hearing on Tuesday, January 19 in Waco Courthouse. His 27-year-old lover said she knew about the criminal intentions of the pastor even before the death of Carey Baker in 2006.
She didn’t report any of the plans of the preacher and she didn’t say anything even after the crime was committed because she was afraid that her relationship with Baker will become known to the public.
"He is a liar and a manipulator who took advantage of my vulnerable position and made me believe everything he said," –announced Vanessa. The prosecutor's office promised her the freedom of prosecution if she did it.
The death of Carey Baker was originally recognized as a suicide, and the authorities began the investigation only after they found out about the love affair of a widowed preacher. The main witness said that Baker put something in his wife’s sleeping pills, chained her to the bed with the handcuffs and strangled with the pillow.
After that he wrote a fake suicide note. The pastor himself, who is facing a life sentence, continues to insist that his wife committed suicide because of her severe depression.
So the Texas Priest, who killed his wife, was sentenced to 65 years in prison. Moreover, the prosecutor even demanded the life sentence.

"There is only one way to officially become a free man - to wait until the Lord will reward me. A woman who I live with will kill herself in a short period of time.
She has diabetes, and she doesn’t want to take care of herself. Her mother died before she got old because of the same disease, she also didn’t take care of herself. So I pray and wait. Everything is in the hands of our Lord. "
