Former wife of Amish school house killer shares her story

Monday, September 30, 2013

It has been seven years since Charles Roberts shot ten girls at an Amish school house in West Nickel Mines, Lancaster County, killing five of them then himself.

Now the woman married to him at the time is sharing her story.

Marie Monville's new book is called "One Light Still Shines."

"What I heard from Charlie was about the loss of our first daughter. And in some way he felt he was getting back at the Lord for the loss that we had sustained," she said. "It was suggested to me that all those years of undealt-with depression resulted in a psychotic break."

Monville spoke exclusively to abc's Good Morning America. Read more here.
