Kelley's ex-wife, Tessa Brennaman said in an interview with the TV show "Inside Edition" that her life was filled with abuse when she was married to him.

Ms Brennaman also said that her ex-husband threatened to kill and members of her family.

'He just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him, ' said Brennaman, adding that Kelley had threatened to kill her and her whole family.

"There would be times where I would be on the floor curled up, and having to protect my organs because he would be violently kicking me on my side", she said in the interview clips released by "Inside Edition".

The domestic violence conviction should have barred Kelley from purchasing firearms from licensed gun sellers.

Jessika Edwards tells The New York Times that she worked with Devin Patrick Kelley near the end of his military career in 2011. He also pleaded guilty to charges that he abused her young son. As a convicted felon, he would not have been able to purchase a gun if the Air Force had reported his status.

"He didn't even blink - he just stared", she said. But soon after they married and moved from Texas to New Mexico, he became abusive and even sexually assaulted her, she said.

The former Air Force airman was sentenced to 12 months of confinement and ultimately removed from the military with a bad-conduct discharge and a reduction of rank.

Texas mass killer Devin Kelley was a man soaked in hate. Pastor Frank Pomeroy, who lost his adopted daughter in the attack, said leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention collectively made the decision to demolish the church, after it was deemed too painful to continue using the building as a place of worship. "He went on and on and on about it, saying 'Isn't it cool?"

Law enforcement officials continue their investigation at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church as the sun begins to rise on November 6, 2017 in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Wilson County Judge Richard Jackson's voice broke as he thanked the first responders and others who rushed to First Baptist Church in the aftermath of the shooting.

Veterans Day has special meaning this year in the small South Texas community where a church massacre occurred last weekend.

After Kelley shot parishioners at the First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, he fled the scene in his truck while being chased by two good Samaritans.

A conservative activist finds it troubling that the Air Force recruiters under the Obama administration apparently ignored or didn't care about the disciplinary problems the Texas church shooter had in high school.
