She accomplished it by killing his new girlfriend and her own children before committing suicide.

The night before the shooting, 36-year-old Jessica Edens sent her estrange husband, Ben Edens, some disturbing text messages regarding their custody battle.

The man called police to check on his daughter, 5-year-old Harper Edens.

When police arrived, they found the mother, her 9-year-old son Hayden King who was born during a previous relationship, and Ben’s daughter, getting ready to watch a movie.

While discussing their situation, Edens told the officer that she wanted to expose her husband who had a year long affair with his coworker, Meredith Rahme, 28.

The officer said that while talking to Edens, there was no indication that she was planning to harm anyone.

Greenville Police Chief Ken Miller said that Rahme had received harassing text messages and phone calls from Edens.

The next day, Edens confronted her estranged husband’s girlfriend and shot her as she was getting out of her car.

Edens then fled. Police found her and her two children dead in her SUV. She was parked at a Speedway gas station just 7 miles from where she murdered Rahme.

They all died from a single gunshot wound with a .40-caliber pistol, according to police.
