STROUDSBURG, Pa. — A former pastor was sentenced Monday to life in prison without parole in the fatal bludgeoning of his second wife in 2008.

I reported earlier that Schirmer was pastor at Bethany United Methodist Church in Lebanon, PA. I’m now reading that he was pastor at Reeders United Methodist Church in Jackson Township at the time of his 2nd wife’s death in 2008.

Hang in there Art, two more wives and you’ll qualify to be an Illinois police sergeant!
Remind me never to marry a man who killed his first wife!
