Family of woman slain before Lakeland church shootings is kept out of her home

LAKELAND — Family members of murder victim Theresa Fogle said Tuesday that they are having a hard time getting closure partly because they have been locked out of the home in which she was found dead Sunday.

Her husband, Jeremiah Fogle, 57, is charged with first-degree murder in her death and accused of shooting and critically wounding two pastors at Greater Faith Christian Center Church down the street from their home during a prayer service Sunday.

Family members said they are arranging a funeral. But Maria Beauford, Theresa Fogle's sister, said Jeremiah Fogle's family has not let them get their sister's belongings.

They want a dress of hers for the funeral.

"All we want to do is prepare ourselves so we can move forward," Beauford said.

Jeremiah Fogle's family could not be reached for comment.
