Long Island huband and wife in murder-suicide; man was upset about her social life & killed her
Last Updated: 7:07 PM, January 29, 2013
A Long Island man upset about his lawyer wife’s new social life after she lost weight fatally shot her in their bedroom yesterday — then turned the gun on himself, family members said.
Police identified the Elmont couple as Karen Rodgers Dennis, 46 – a mother of three grown children — and her husband, Audley Dennis, 58, who worked in shipping.
“Basically, she was really enjoying her life at the time and it didn’t sit too pretty with him,” said Karen’s brother, Ken Rodgers. “She was going out with the girls and friends.”
Neighbors said the pair was often heard arguing — and suspected the reason was Karen’s stunning new figure.
“Maybe there was jealousy. She looked great. She was going out a lot,” said neighbor Simone Dolabaille, 35.
She did not have words as kind for Audley, whom she called “generally unpleasant.”
“He would kick stuff into my driveway. He would never say good morning or goodnight,” Dolabaille said.
Ken Rogers said his sister wasn’t cheating on her husband.
“It was mostly girls nights out,” he said. “Maybe he saw his world just breaking up in front of him and he couldn’t take it.”
Nassau County Det. Sgt. James Skopek said Karen was found shot several times in the upper torso in her bedroom. Audley was found dead of a shotgun blast to the chest.
“They had their altercations. They would argue and yell, have outbursts. They would just be cursing. They argued about money. It would turn into something stupid about stuff for the house, groceries,” said 19-yr-old Dejon Nemorin, who is pals with Aidan – one of the couple’s sons.
They have three children: Aidan, 16, Aaron, 19 and Maya, 21. The 19-year-old son attends Villanova on a soccer scholarship an the 21-year-old goes to Williams College.
Police said they had been called to the home for domestic violence issues over the years, but said the most recent call was five years ago.
“We don’t know what provoked it,” Skopek said of the shooting.
On her Facebook page, Karen, an attorney, can be seen flaunting her new figure and received several encouraging compliments about her recent weight loss.
“You go girl!!” posted Sonya Rogers-Blyden.
“You look great. Keep up the good work. I am working myself also. I lost 49 lbs in in months, dropped 4 dress size, working on 5. God Bless, elaine,” wrote Elaine A Johnson.

    This just breaks my heart this poor woman killed, now her kids have to mourn the death of both parents and deal with the trauma of knowing that their father murdered their mother. Why the little punk ass bitch never carry her out too, why he never go in the gym with her , why he never encourage and compliment her. Some of these assholes only feel good when you fat, lonely and miserable sitting in the house like a dusty ornament. My only consolation in this is that hell is very f#@king hot and eternity is a very very long time let his ass burn.

    No sah, i would like more information on this if possible. Cause she lose di weight him head tek him?? Mi nuh think that. The police seh dat they have responded to calls relating to domestic violence issues at that house, the last one being 5 years ago. The man was grumpy and miserable from time (reading where the neighbours are coming from), so much more was happening in that household. Money worries was identified as one issue…… mi naw guh trivialize this down to weight just so………..

    RIP Ms. Rodgers. When will some men let go of their low self esteem and be totally supportive of their woman achievements. Some have issues if you go for higher education, if you look too good, if you too independent, etc. This vicious cycle needs to end.

  • No Joke says:

    I’m with Belly on this one. There were other underlying factors besides the weight loss and going out with the girls to label that as the motive for him snapping. The egos of men are very fragile and when compounded by a possessive personality trait it can be a recipe for disaster. I’m certain that in all the years she has invested with this man, with all the problems in their marriage, she never would have envisioned him taking her life. It’s a sad situation all around but I wish that when they decide to end it, they would just end it for themselves and leave the women who cannot be held responsible for their emotional instability alone.
    Ladies, sometimes saying goodbye is a difficult thing but when telltale signs are there, muster the courage to walk away even if one has to move to another state. Any man that loses his temper enough to hit a woman, will lose it enough to kill a woman.

  • T Morning one and all, this is very disturbing bad, it’s no joke the men them now a days is exhibiting some thing real sinister, they can’t deal with letting go and moving on, if u even run a joke about leaving, the first tging come out of them mouth is killing u and them self, it seems as if it’s an epidemic broke out these last couple of years. I agree with Belly, this couple have issues, and the man seems very unpleasent and hostile, and thats according to the neighbour’s report. If him could’nt take the way how she look, him could hit the gym too, or kill him self and leave the poor woman. May her soul R. I. P

    @Fashiondoll, sis it’s so true. Too many men are intimidated and jealous of a woman’s success, particularly if that success outweighs his. The article states she was an attorney and he worked in shipping.
    After 7 long years of studying, hard work and passing the bar just to have him end her life is so sad.

  • ... says:

    I kinda believe, you have some real insecure men out there, especially if whe became a lawyer during her union its possible. This is NY some sick fkas live here. Memba some man weh if dem did deh a yaad dem coulda neva live dis life or deh wid certain woman so if him feel like him nuh have control it more than possible. But there are 3 sides to a story

  • Jules says:
