Sutherland Springs killer Devin Patrick Kelley had threatened his mother-in-law and her family months before he opened fire in the First Baptist Church on Nov. 5 and killed 26 people.

Kelley threatened harm to Michelle Shields, the mother of his second wife, Danielle Shields, if she tried to see their newborn baby last May.

Kelley had a violent past. He was sentenced to confinement by the Air Force for abusing his first wife and fracturing his stepson’s skull in 2012. Kelley received a bad conduct discharge and was kicked out of the Air Force in 2014, the same year he married Danielle.
