Charles Richard Jennings Jr.
A Utah man who entered a Father’s Day Mass hand-in-hand with his wife then shot her dad in the head seconds later was sentenced Thursday to four years to life in prison for attempted murder.
It was a quiet part of the Father’s Day Mass as about 300 people stood up in preparation for communion. A parishioner, known by many at the church as Ricky Jennings, entered through the glass doors in back, holding his wife Cheryl’s hand.
A 35-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of walking into a Catholic church and shooting his father-in-law in the back of the head during Mass.
