State police say man fatally shoots ex-wife during church service in north-central Pa. church

An elementary school music teacher has been jailed on charges that he walked into a north-central Pennsylvania church service and shot and killed his ex-wife.

The defense attorney for 52-year-old Gregory Eldred, of Coudersport, did not immediately return a call for comment Monday.

Eldred is charged with first-degree murder for Sunday's shooting of 53-year-old Darlene Sitler, also of Coudersport.

Troopers from the Coudersport barracks did not immediately offer a description or explanation of the shooting at the First United Presbyterian Church where, the Bradford Era (http://bit.ly/YH01tE ) reports, Sitler served as organist and choir director.

Police say Eldred shot Sitler Sunday about 11:20 a.m. during a church service, but that nobody else was injured.

Others in the congregation grabbed Eldred and held him until police arrived.
