Tim Bliefnick, a former contestant on the game show “Family Feud,” is under scrutiny for his jokes about marriage after being charged with killing his estranged wife.
Rebecca “Becky” Bliefnick, a nurse at Blessing Hospital and a mother of three boys, was found dead from several gunshot wounds in February after failing to pick up their children from school.
Tim, aged 39 and hailing from Quincy, Illinois, has been charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of home invasion.
The couple, who married in 2009, had reportedly separated several years ago and were in the process of getting divorced at the time of Becky’s death.
According to court documents, she had restraining orders against Tim and his father, and Tim later had a restraining order filed against her.
During his appearance on the game show “Family Feud,” host Steve Harvey asked Tim Bliefnick, “What’s the biggest mistake you made at your wedding?” Tim responded with a joke, saying, “Honey, I love you, but, ‘said I do.'”
Although his comment elicited a mix of laughs and gasps from the audience, Tim quickly added, “Not my mistake, not my mistake — I love my wife. I’m gonna get in trouble for that, aren’t I?” A video clip of the exchange was made available.
Tim Bliefnick, who had been working in business development at Quincy Farm Products and was formerly a football star at Quincy University, has been accused of killing his estranged wife, Rebecca Bliefnick.
He maintains his innocence, according to his attorney Casey Schnack, and is being held in the Adams County Jail without bond following a hearing on Tuesday.
Quincy Farm Products has stated that Tim is no longer employed by the company.
Guess we’ll have to wait and see how this all shakes out in the end…
