    Default Newlywed doctor killed wife and himself in bitter pre-nup dispute on wedding day

    'You'll never get your hands on my money': Final words of newlywed doctor who shot dead wife and then himself in bitter pre-nup dispute on their WEDDING DAY minutes after last guest left

    -George 'Scott' Samson shot dead his new wife Kelly Ecker Sunday morning
    -Newlyweds began arguing at their reception after-party at their home
    -This caused guests to leave around 1.17am because of the fighting
    -At 1.20am Ecker made a series of frantic phone calls to 911 asking for help
    -Police arrived to the Terre Haute mansion of Samson to find both dead
    -Samson is an anesthesiologist who worked at Union Hospital in Indiana
    -Ecker works as a nurse at the same hospital and has a 10-year-old son
    -Samson held a Federal Firearms License which allowed him to trade guns
    -Police recovered assault rifles and hundreds of rounds of ammunition

    An Indiana anesthesiologist shot dead his wife minutes after the last guest left their wedding party early on Sunday morning after an alleged alcohol fueled argument over a pre-nuptial agreement turned tragic.

    Dr. George 'Scott' Samson, 54, is said to have told his new wife, Kelly Ecker, 50, that she would 'never get her hands on his money' during the wedding reception at the Ohio Building in Terre Haute on Saturday evening.

    According to witnesses, the argument became increasingly bitter when the wedding after-party moved to Samson and Ecker's mansion, with guests deciding to leave at 1.17am on Sunday morning as the fighting escalated.

    Three minutes after the final guest departed, Ecker, who is a nurse at the same hospital as Samson, made the first of three terrified 911 calls claiming her husband was going to kill her.

    The first two frantic calls to the dispatcher ended abruptly, but moments later Ecker phoned back, her trembling voice pleading for help, before a volley of gunshots rang out and the phone line cut.

    Less than half-an-hour later, officers who who responded to the couple's Terre Haute home discovered the body of Ecker, fatally shot in the head and neck and in the basement the body of Samson, who had taken his own life with a 45-caliber semi automatic pistol.

    According to Advance Indiana, the reception had been changed from the newlywed's home to the Ohio Building at the last minute and the marquee tent set up in their garden still hauntingly sits outside their home.

    Police said that Samson shot his wife multiple times with a 40-caliber handgun and records show that the Terre Haute doctor held a Federal Firearms License, which effectively enabled him to trade and sell weapons from his property - in a manner similar to a gun store owner.

    Indeed, according to Advance Indiana, police recovered a literal arsenal of weapons from the home, including assault rifles, hand guns and several hundred rounds of ammunition.

    'They had just gotten married and something went terribly wrong,' said Vigo County Coroner, Dr. Susan Amos.

    'He shot her and then shot himself. We are still in a second autopsy to confirm that.'

    Witnesses told the IndyStar that the couple had argued at the end of their reception and the final guest left anesthesiologist Samson's home at 1.17am.

    Ecker, a nurse at Union Hospital, phoned 911 at 1.20am after witnesses said their argument about money spiraled out of control.

    'The investigation has revealed that there was an verbal argument between the couple toward the end of the reception, which carried over to the after party at the couples' home,' said Vigo County Chief Deputy Sheriff Clark Cottom in an email to the IndyStar.

    'Shortly after the last guest left at around 1:17 a.m., Kelly Ecker Samson called 911 reporting that her husband had threatened to kill her.

    'There were a total of three very brief 911 calls, which in the first two the caller disconnected.'

    Cottom said that Ekcer was found in the bedroom her 10-year-old son from a previous relationship slept in, while Samson shot himself once in the head with a registered gun.

    'Deputies did find the female victim inside the child's bedroom deceased,' said Cottom to WISHTV.

    Cottom said that Ekcer's son and an elderly couple believed to be Samson's parents were inside the home at the time of the shooting, but were not harmed and escorted out by police when they arrived.

    'We received information from the elderly male that the female's husband Scott Samson had retreated to the basement,' said Cottom to WISHTV.

    Samson, 54, is a doctor at Union Hospital in Taure Haute and one witness told WISHTV that guests left the wedding party because of the argument that the newlyweds were having.

    'They were having some domestic problems at the house. Within a short amount of time guests decided it would be best if they left. Shortly after the last guest left that's when things went terribly wrong,' said Cottom.
    When police arrived, they discovered the basement locked and so had to call out the Terre Haute Police Department Special Response Team.

    'The remote camera was able to determine he was in the basement, unresponsive,' said Cottom.

    Friends such as Brooke Llewellyn took to Facebook to express their grief at the loss of their friend.

    'Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine on this day that our time as friends would be cut so short,' wrote Brooke.

    'You will forever be remembered by many as the most outgoing and energetic woman'

    Well, I think it's only fair that the family return all the wedding gifts since the marriage didn't even last a day.

    I looked it up earlier. He will be entitled to whatever he could have expected his mom to provide for him financially had she not been murdered. But it is capped at $300K. I think that is a crappy law that Indiana has:

    Indiana Code 34-23-1

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm, could her parents also as individual Plaintiff's and on his behalf? and any other close relatives? I don't know, the whole thing is just seriously fucked up. I wonder how lovely the rest of their time together was.

    That part I can't figure out. However, just doing the math pisses me off. This 10 year old could have expeted his mom to support him for at least another 8 years. She was a nurse and had to be making at least $50K a year. That would put her lost income toward the son at about $400K. Yet, he will get $100K less.

    Also, if you look up the history of wrongful death suits, you will see that at one point in time, there was no such thing -- no damages at all. So, there was this incredibly PERVERSE incentive for someone who attacked and injured you to "finish the job" since he or she would be on the hook for LESS money if they took your life.

    He will get more. Only the wrongful death claim is capped, and lawyers never file single claim lawsuits. They'll tack on intentional infliction of emotional distress, loss of companionship, etc, etc. He will end up with more like $500-750k. It does suck that wrongful death is capped because that's the big money claim.

    Obviously I don't know all the details here, but if Samson had no other children, wouldn't the stepson inherit everything from his estate? Technically both his guardians died...wouldn't that in itself leave him as the heir?

    A guy like this usually has at least two ex wives and three children who have, understandably ceased communicating with him.
