Father of Murdered Woman Says Husband Admitted to Previous Murder Feb. 22, 2014 By GILLIAN MOHNEY PHOTO: Erin W. Willinger is shown in this Facebook photo.
The father of an American woman killed in India said she was in the process of dissolving her marriage, when she was allegedly killed by her estranged husband.
Erin Willinger, 30, was found stabbed to death on Thursday by the side of the road in Agra, India, the home of the Taj Mahal. Her husband, Bunty Sharma, was suspected of killing her, but killed himself the same day by exploding a can of cooking oil.
Willinger's father Andrew Willinger told ABC News that couple had not lived together for months after getting married last October.
According to Andrew Willinger, of Newtown, Mass., his daughter left the apartment she shared with Sharma after he allegedly admitted that he had been imprisoned for killing a friend years earlier after an argument.
"He tells her this story thinking that she would understand. She was appalled and she basically left within weeks of their wedding," Willinger said.
Local reports have stated that the couple separated due to other marital problems, including accusations that they both hid previous marriages from each other. According to these reports, the police said the couple had seen a counselor who convinced them to live together again.
Andrew Willinger said those reports were false and his daughter knew Sharma had a previous wife, who died of an illness and was the mother of his 6-year-old son.

Neat trick, but we need to know more...
Play in freeway traffic and you’re likely to be involved in a collision.
I agree....put it in the oven, perhaps?
I was wondering about that, too.
Religion of Peace (c) or some other murderous cult?
That was her? I was expecting some blued haired old dowager-wannabe-cougar, somebody like Ozzy Ozbourne’s wife. This pretty little gal must have had other choices, yet, all other suitors were rejected.
there, in the middle of the night, far from anything, was a youngish woman walking along the highway....
what are we supposed to do when people put themselves in such danger?.....into chaos by making insane choices?....
the answer is really nothing...nothing we can do...
>> I was expecting...
Sadly, it’s always someone’s child.
We were in India recently. That anyone (especially from middle class America) would decide to marry an Indian pedicab driver is a bit weird. There must have been some unusual neediness being met.
So sad. Such a fine looking girl.
I agree. Rickshaw drivers (or any public transportation drivers) are usually not best gentlemen, and top line husband material.
