Benefit Planned for Domestic Shooting Victim

A benefit will be held tomorrow for a woman police say was shot by her estranged husband last month.

Indiana State Police say during the early morning hours of August 1, Melanie Greer’s estranged husband Jeffery Greer allegedly broke into her home outside of Culver and shot her in the face before turning the gun on himself. They say two boys, ages seven and ten, were in the home at the time but were not hurt.

Benefit organizers say Melanie has many obstacles to overcome before she’ll be physically and financially able to take care of her family. They say money raised from the event will go towards her recovery and the needs of her boys.

The benefit will include an all you can eat dinner, bake sale, raffles, an auction, and a guest speaker on domestic violence. It will be held tomorrow from 4:00 – 11:30 p.m. at the Knox VFW.
