Former Homewood pastor indicted in wife’s murder

HOMEWOOD, Ala. (WIAT) – Former Homewood pastor Richard Shahan has been indicted for the murder of his wife, Karen.

Shahan allegedly stabbed his wife and cut her through at their home on High Circle in July of 2013. Shahan initially told investigators he was out of town when Karen Shahan was murdered.

He was arrested in January while trying to leave the country and charged with murder. Court records show a grand jury then returned a murder indictment in August.

Shahan is currently free on a $100,000 bond.
