A western New York woman was killed as she was walking her dogs Wednesday evening after a neighbor thought she was a deer.

Rosemary Billquist, 43, had arrived home from work when she told her husband, Jamie, she was taking their Labrador Retrievers Sugar and Stella on a walk in the field behind their home.

Minutes later he heard the dogs barking and saw an ambulance pull up into his driveway, according to The Buffalo News.

An EMT who was a friend of his told him that his wife had been shot in the hip. She was taken to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Rosemary had been accidentally shot by a neighbor, 34-year-old Thomas B. Jadlowski, who told police he thought he was aiming at a deer when he shot his pistol, The Buffalo News reported.

That’s when Jadlowski heard the scream, police told the newspaper. Jadlowski called 911 and applied pressure to Rosemary’s wound.

Jamie told the outlet, “They tried saving her. It was just too bad. It’s horrific. It will be with me the rest of my life.”

No charges have been filed against Jadlowski, who has been cooperating with authorities in their investigation, according to NBC Chicago.

Jamie took to social media on Thanksgiving to express his sorrow and love for his wife, writing, “I want to say thank you very much from my heart it means a lot and I know she’s touched so many lives with her kindness and would help anyone no matter what.”

“Plz everyone have thanksgiving with your family’s and enjoy those moments they are precious,” he continued. “Rosemary Jafarjian-Billquist I will miss you and love you forever and I know you dancing in heaven with your momma and all of our friends and family that we have lost.”

The Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office is working with investigators from the New York Department of Environmental Conservation and the local district attorney’s office to decide if charges will be filed, according to Fox News.

Jamie told The Buffalo News his wife was an avid runner and bicyclist, having run about 60 marathons.

Her funeral service will be held on Wednesday. Jamie told the outlet he believed Jadlowski should face some kind of justice.

“I think he needs to learn a lesson,” he said. “There’s rules. You should abide by them… It’s disturbing. It’s a two-second decision that he’ll regret for the rest of his life.”

“She could have done so much more,” he continued. “Her life was cut way too short.”

A Virginia youth pastor was arrested and charged in three murders that occurred at his home on Thanksgiving.

Christopher Gattis, 58, was arrested late Thursday night after Chesterfield County police officers arrived at the home for a reported alarm, according to the Associated Press.

Authorities found the bodies of 58-year-old Jeanett Gattis; her daughter, Candice Kunze, 30; and Kunze’s boyfriend, Andrew Buthorn, 36 — all dead from apparent gunshot wounds, the police said in a statement obtained by the AP.

The outlet reported Gattis had no lawyer listed in online court records.

Gattis has been charged with three counts of first-degree murder and is being held in the Chesterfield County Jail with no bail, the Richmond Times-Dispatch reported. He does not have a lawyer at this time.

Buthorn’s body was discovered by police in the front yard of Gattis’ home, while the bodies of the two women were found inside, according to the newspaper.

Gattis married Jeanett in 2009, as shown on his Facebook page.

As well as murder charges, Gattis is facing three counts of use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, the Times-Dispatch reported.

He worked as as high school youth ministries coordinator for Grace Lutheran Church. The church released a statement obtained by WTVR on Friday afternoon, saying, “Members of the Grace Lutheran Church are deeply saddened by the loss of life last night as a result of three individuals being shot in Chester and this tragedy included members of Grace Lutheran Church.”

“Grace Lutheran Church has experienced many hardships over the years, but this heartbreak has unique challenges,” the statement continued. “Grace Lutheran Church asks for the prayers from our community as our congregation begins the process of addressing the grief being experienced by everyone involved.”

Neighbors told the Times-Dispatch that Kunze had moved back home about six weeks ago and brought along her boyfriend.

“They were good people,” Larry Patton told the outlet. “ would do anything for you. He was always quick to laugh. He had a hearty laugh.”

“They welcomed us to the neighborhood,” Patton continued. “It’s just sad that their Thanksgiving ended that way.”
