The former wife of the man who opened fire inside an Amish schoolhouse in Lancaster County is breaking her silence for the first time since that tragic day.
Marie Roberts Monville released a YouTube video Thursday.
Back in October of 2006, her husband at the time, Charles Roberts, barricaded himself inside a schoolhouse near Nickel Mines and fire several shots, killing five Amish girls and badly wounding five others.
He then turned the gun on himself.
In the video, Monville talks about the moment police told her what had happened.
"To know that that man who walked down to the bus stop and kissed his own kids and said that he loved them was capable of hurting someone else's children was unfathomable," Monville said. "Yet there was no way to say that it couldn't happen because it just had."
The video is part of a promotion for Monville's new book, "One Light Still Shines: My Life Beyond the Shadow of the Amish Schoolhouse Shooting."
The book is due out in October.
