Texas Church Shooter's Ex-wife Says He Abused, Threatened to Kill Her

The ex-wife of Devin Patrick Kelley, the 26-year-old gunman who killed 26 people in a rural Texas church last week, says she lived in "constant fear" of him during their brief marriage.

In an exclusive interview that will air on Inside Edition Monday, Tessa Brennaman revealed how she is still traumatized by her relationship with Devin Kelley, the gunman who murdered 26 people in Sutherland Springs on November 5.

Kelley also admitted to hitting his then-wife, kicking her, choking her and pulling her hair.

The Air Force said on Monday it had failed to provide information as required about Kelley's criminal history to the FBI's criminal databases. They said all three were purchased by Kelley.

"He's like, 'I could just bury you somewhere in the desert and no one would ever find you, '" she said. "Do you want to die?'"

After Kelley shot parishioners at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, he fled the scene in his truck while being chased by two good Samaritans.

Brennaman recalled her terror when Kelley (left and right) flew into a rage over a speeding ticket and put a gun to her head. Around that same time, Kelley was charged with assaulting Brennaman and her child from a previous relationship.
