Texas church shooter Devin Kelley's ex-wife says he abused and threatened to kill her

The former wife of Devin Kelley, the man who opened fire at a Texas church last Sunday killing at least 26 people, said he had a lot of “hatred inside him” and threatened to kill her whole family.
Tessa Brennaman, 25, told “Inside Edition” that her first husband was abusive towards her and even threatened to shoot her after she received a speeding ticket.
"He just had a lot of demons or hatred inside of him," Brennaman told "Inside Edition. "He had a gun in his holster right here and he took that gun out and he put it to my temple and he told me, 'Do you want to die? Do you want to die?'"The former couple divorced in 2012.
In 2013, Kelley pleaded guilty to choking Brennaman, pulling her hair and kicking her. He also pleaded guilty to hitting her young son’s head and body, fracturing his skull.
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.
On Monday, the Air Force acknowledged it did not enter Kelley's criminal history into the federal database used to conduct background checks on citizens looking to purchase a firearm. Authorities recovered a Ruger AR-556 rifle at the church and two handguns from Kelley's vehicle. They said all three were purchased by Kelley.
