American-Indian Love Story Ends in Tragedy in Agra

24 February 2014

An Indian man fatally stabbed his American wife before killing himself in Agra, the city that is home to the Taj Mahal and where the couple married in October, police said on Saturday. The body of Erin W. Willinger, 35, was found with multiple stab wounds late Thursday night in a deserted part of the city, while her husband Bunty Sharma committed suicide by igniting cooking gas and causing a massive explosion in his home, police said. The couple met last year when Willinger visited the Taj Mahal with friends. After marrying, Willinger began working with a local nongovernmental organization to promote tourism in Agra. Sharma, 32, was a rickshaw cab driver.—AP
