Ashley Fallis’s family never bought the story that she killed herself following a New Year’s Eve celebration three years ago — and their persistence has finally paid off. Her husband, former police officer Tom Fallis, has been arrested and charged with murdering her and then making it look like a suicide following an argument about marijuana smoking.
The indictment states that Tom and Ashley hosted a New Year’s party attended by fifteen to twenty people, including Ashley’s parents, plus an aunt and uncle. Then, around 12:30 a.m., Ashley reportedly said she was going to go outside to “have a smoke”.
At that point, Tom allegedly “became irate at the belief that she was going to smoke marijuana.”
A heated argument followed, and the assorted party attendees left. Then, the indictment maintains, while with Ashley in their bedroom, Tom “obtained a Taurus 9mm handgun, and during the struggle, held the gun to the right side of Ashley’s head and pulled the trigger.”
