Wife Ambushes, Kills Husband's Lover Before Turning the Gun on Herself

Crime scene investigators enter home of Meredith Chapman after murder-suicide on Monday night in Radnor

Radnor Township police say 48-year-old Jennair Gerardot broke into Chapman's home, waited for her to arrive, then shot and killed her before turning the gun on herself.

A 33-year-old Villanova University employee was shot and killed Monday night as soon as she walked in the door of her home, by the wife of a man she had an affair with.

Radnor police say they have located a set of keys used by Jennair Gerardot to drive from DE to Radnor prior to executing a murder-suicide plot inside a home in the Rosemont section of the township.

Chapman had recently left her job at the University of DE and began working as an assistant vice president of marketing and creative services at Villanova University.

Police said Gerardot shot Chapman around 7 p.m. upon returning to her Radnor, Pennsylvania home Monday evening.

According to police, texts and emails sent to Mark indicated Jennair knew about the affair, and came up with the "calculated, planned attack" as a result.

There are e-mails and text messages regarding what she was planning to do. When the police arrived they found Mark outside Chapman's house. "Most people who met Meredith were instantly dazzled by her".

Police officers who were called Chapman's house on Monday found Gerardot in her driveway.

Chapman, a Republican, also unsuccessfully ran for senatorial office in 2016, against Democratic incumbent Dave Sokola for the 8th District Senate seat.

A spokeswoman for Chapman family said they were "heartbroken and requests privacy and respect as they grieve".

Chapman, who was married to Newark City Councilman Luke Chapman, had just started working as a marketing manager at Villanova University.

Mark Gerardot reported to Chapman at the University of DE, working as a creative director. A spokesman for Villanova named Jonathan Gust expressed the university's sadness over this event, saying, "Our hearts are broken by the devastating loss of our new colleague", he said.

'The thoughts and prayers of the entire University community are with her family, friends and colleagues during this extremely hard time'.

"Everyone who knew and worked with Meredith is heartbroken", the University of DE said in a statement to WHYY. Meredith and Luke Chapman are close friends. While in the kitchen, Jennair took out her gun and shot Chapman in the head before using the same weapon to commit suicide. Just a week on the job and I'm already feeling the love from #NovaNation! "I simply can't imagine what he is going through".

Gerardot had gone to a restaurant where he thought he'd be meeting Chapman for dinner.

According to Jennair Gerardot's LinkedIn account, the DE wife worked as a marketing manager for a South Carolina-based manufacturing company called Circor Instrumentation for five years, leaving the outlet in December.
