WELLS COUNTY, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - A Wells County man appeared in court Wednesday morning on charges that he shot and killed his estranged wife.
27-year-old Tyler White is charged with murder, and is tentatively scheduled to stand trial on April 20th.
Police arrested him Tuesday morning after they say they found him next to his wife's body at their Wells County home on County Road 100 South.
They claim he confessed.
Officials say he shot and killed 28-year-old Amy Meyer White while they were exchanging custody of their toddler.
The couple had been going through a divorce. The child is now in the custody of relatives.
Amy Meyer White was the Assistant Cross-Country Coach at South Adams High School, and had been an Assistant Basketball Coach at the University of Saint Francis, where she had also played.
Mike Pries, Athletic Director for South Adams says Amy White has a big impact.
"She was a very positive and encouraging coach," explained Pries. " She was a good person. She was one of the best athletes that ever graduated from South Adams."
Meyer-White graduated from South Adams in 1999, and still remains the school's all-time leading scorer in basketball.
The results of an autopsy conducted on Tuesday are expected next week.

So they may not be forgotten...
News articles disappear after time, sometimes within weeks. This website won't disappear. It was brought about because of my absolute disgust with April Will's death in Indianapolis. After the shock wore off, I decided to make sure nobody would forget the victims. Feel free to contact me with victims to add if they have not been added yet. I am working at adding victims for the past several years, at least back to 2004. Beyond that, it is difficult to find information. I am adding any domestic violence death in Indiana (however I am not listing perpetrators that died as a result of murder-suicide).
I have done my best to try and find pictures of all the dear victims so they will not be forgotten. If not available, a burning candle or angel is placed instead. If you have a picture of one of the victims you'd like to share, please contact me at the email address below. Thank you.
