Wife of Amish shooter in Allentown


The widow of the man behind the massacre at an Amish schoolhouse visited Allentown Sunday.

Marie Monville spoke to more than 200 people at Saint Peter's Lutheran Church at 1933 Hanover Avenue.

She talked about the inspirational role God has played in her life.

She also signed copies of her book, "One Light Still Shines."


Her husband - CharlesĀ  Roberts - shot 10 children inside a schoolhouse in Nickel Mines, Lancaster County, back in October of 2006.

Five of the children died and Roberts then killed himself.
