An Alabama pastor accused of stabbing his wife to death was on his way marry his boyfriend in England when he was arrested at an airport earlier this month, according to prosecutors.

Richard Lee Shahan was arrested January 1 at Nashville's airport, approximately five months after his wife was stabbed to death in the couple's home. After going through 3,000 of his emails, prosecutors say they learned of Shahan's plan to meet his boyfriend in Europe, traveling first to Kazakhstan—where he'd told relatives and friends he was going on a three-year mission trip—and then settling in the UK.

"He planned to become a citizen there and begin a new life with his boyfriend… who he intended to marry," Deputy Jefferson County District Attorney Leigh Gwathney told "He had no intention of ever returning to the United States. He had no home to return to and he had said his goodbyes to his family."…..


Interesting to read the comments – People seem torn between blaming homosexuals and blaming Christians for this. He had the finances to move overseas or move his boyfriend to live in a state where gay marriage is legal.

I blame a *murderer* and a coward who killed someone just to protect his reputation.
