Wife shot husband's mistress dead then killed herself after discovering their affair

Police say the murder-suicide stemmed from an affair between Chapman and Gerardot's husband, Mark.

Emails and text messages detail the wife's plan to murder her husband's mistress, Colarulo said. Before that, she and her husband worked at their own marketing and design company, Gerardot & Co.

"She loved her family fiercely, was a compassionate friend and among the most talented and innovative professionals in her field", a spokesperson for the family added. "Most people who met Meredith were instantly dazzled by her".

Gerardot's husband, Mark Gerardot, had been waiting to meet Chapman for dinner and became anxious when she didn't show up.

"[Gerardot] went to great lengths to disguise herself", Police Superintendent William Colarulo said.

WDEL and the News Journal are reporting that former GOP Senate Candidate and former University of DE communications official, Meredith Chapman, was killed last night at a home in Radnor Township, Pennsylvania in what sources are describing as a murder-suicide.

Chapman had recently left her job at the University of DE and began working as an assistant vice president of marketing and creative services at Villanova University.

A Pennsylvania woman allegedly shot a woman she believed was having an affair with her husband, before turning the gun on herself in a gruesome murder-suicide on Monday night. "Her family is devastated, heartbroken and requests privacy and respect as they grieve". They lived and worked together in IN at a branding and package design agency called Gerardot & Co., co-founded by Mark. Meredith's incredible skill as a communicator, paired with a natural effervescence and love of people, made Newark and the University of DE a better place and more closely-knit community.

Upon reaching the house, Jennair waited for Chapman to come home and to confront her about the love affair with Mark. She then waited for Chapman to return home, according to authorities. When police arrived, Mark Gerardot was outside the home, WaPo reported. Police say she was walking into a trap. In 2016, Chapman ran against state Sen. The university told the News Journal he left the job there earlier this month. "I simply can't imagine what he is going through".

The University of DE also released a statement: "Everyone who knew and worked with Meredith is heartbroken". The former UD cheerleader also coached the sport at Newark High School.

According to Jennair Gerardot's LinkedIn account, the DE wife worked as a marketing manager for a South Carolina-based manufacturing company called Circor Instrumentation for five years, leaving the outlet in December.
