LATIMES - A Pennsylvania woman is accused of fatally stabbing her husband-to-be just hours before they were scheduled to be married. But, according to the Morning Call newspaper, Franklin did not realize her fiance was dead when she came before a judge that same day. The newspaper reported that Franklin stood mute, and seemingly stunned, when a judge told her she was being charged with a single count of homicide. “You got to check again!” Franklin cried out during the Saturday afternoon court hearing, begging the judge to check once more on Brewster’s condition, according to the newspaper. Relatives staying with the couple told police that Brewster had announced plans to go out and grab some food for the crowd when an argument ensued, authorities said.Then, police said, Monique Kali of Illinois, who was among those visiting for the wedding, said she heard someone yell “Knife!” Kali told police she saw Franklin swinging a knife. Fearing that her husband might be injured, Kali told police, she tackled Franklin, who was then disarmed. A neighbor told the newspaper that the pastor who was supposed to marry the couple showed up at the apartment complex Saturday morning looking for the bride and groom after they failed to show up for the ceremony.
And this is why the bride should never see the groom before the wedding. I mean if I’ve said it once I’ve said it a thousand times. The rules of engagement are written for your safety and for that of your team. Sucks they had to learn this the hard way. Regardless this had to be so awk when the Pastor showed up at the house to marry these two lovebirds.
Pastor - “So where is the happy bride and groom!”
Friend - “Oh the bride killed the groom a couple hours ago. Wedding’s off cus”
PS – Say whatever you want about the bride but her response to being charged with murder is priceless. “Check again!” And the judge is just like “nah he’d dead. We’re sure of it.” The whole story is not funny, but kind of funny.
