Pennsylvania police are conducting an investigation after a woman shot and killed her husband’s alleged mistress before turning the gun on herself, as reported by NY Daily News.
The Delaware woman traveled to Pennsylvania to fatally shoot another woman she believed to be having an affair with her husband in the murder-suicide, police said Tuesday.
The alleged shooter, 47-year-old Jennair Gerardot, broke into the Radnor Township home of Meredith Chapman, 33, on Monday afternoon, laying in wait until the evening for her victim to arrive home for what police called a “calculated, planned attack.”
Authorities say Gerardot open fired on the victim, killing her, before shooting and killing herself.
The murder-suicide occurred at Chapman’s home in the Rosemont section of Radnor Township, Pennsylvania, on Monday, April 23. Investigators found both of their bodies in the back of the home, police said at a press conference.
Gerardot it was reported, brought a wig to the scene, police said.

While authorities are still piecing timeline and events together, it is believed that Jennair Gerardot, a marketing professional from Wilmington, Delaware, suspected Chapman was having an affair with her husband, Mark Gerardot.
Police say that Jennair Gerardot texted her husband Mark a series of messages “in which she laid out how she planned to kill the woman with whom he was having an affair,” before the murder-suicide.
Mark actually appeared at the crime scene, telling police “my wife might be in there.” It is believed he was in the area to meet Chapman for dinner and became alarmed when she didn’t show up, as reported by Philly.com.
Cops said Gerardot knew her husband was having an affair with Chapman, 33, and that the slaying was a “calculated, planned attack.”
Chapman was a former candidate for state Senate.

Detectives are investigating emails and text messages showing Gerardot planned the killing, police said. Authorities also found a bag possibly belonging to Chapman that contained a wig and clothing.
Gerardot’s husband was in the area and believed he was meeting Chapman for dinner, but he became concerned when she didn’t show up, police said.
Chapman was assistant vice president at Villanova University and also worked at the University of Delaware where she graduated from, according to her LinkedIn page. She also unsuccessfully ran for Senate in 2016.
