21-Y-O Christianity Student, Children’s Minister Charged With Murdering Fiancée He Was to Wed in August; Made It Look Like Suicide
Christian single women: ditch the “equally yoked” teaching. What matters is if the guy you are marrying treats you well, NOT if he professes a belief in Christ.
You have to judge a guy based on his characer, track record, and how he treats you in particular, not how often he goes to church, or if he reads the Bible, or says he “accepted Jesus as Savior.”
Here’s another news story about a Christian man who killed his wife (to be):
- Charles Pittman, a student at Union University, allegedly gunned down Olivia Greenlee on Tuesday night in a Jackson, Tenn., parking lot. Police say the 21-year-old tried to make it look like the music education major had killed herself — and has since been arrested on charges of first-degree murder and evidence tampering.

A 21-year-old Christianity student and children’s minister who allegedly murdered his fiancée he was expected to wed in August, then tried to make it look like a suicide, has been suspended by his church after he was arrested and charged by the Jackson Police Department in Tennessee.
Investigators in the case announced Saturday that they had charged Charles Pittman, 21, with the first-degree murder of his fiancée, Olivia Greenlee, 21. Pittman was also charged with tampering with evidence related to the murder, according to the Jackson Sun.
Both Pittman and Greenlee attended Union University in Tennessee where Pittman is a senior Christian ministries major while Greenlee was a senior in music education. While the two were engaged they lived separately off campus.
Capt. Tyreece Miller said that at 7:50 a.m. Wednesday, police were called to a parking lot behind Luther Hall on campus where Greenlee was discovered dead in her 2001 Toyota Corolla. A gun was found inside the car and the preliminary cause of death was noted as a single gunshot wound.
During a three-day investigation Miller said they discovered that the gun belonged to a friend of Pittman’s who acknowledged it was his gun but did not know it was taken.
Pittman soon became a person of interest in the case, and after a follow-up interview he was taken into custody based on the findings of investigators. Police argue that Pittman shot Greenlee as she sat in her car on Tuesday night, then staged the scene to make it look like it was a suicide.
“This case shows that domestic violence affects people from all different races, religions and socioeconomic statuses,” Miller said on Saturday.
… Church leaders at Providence Baptist Church in Alamo, where Pittman served as youth and children’s minister, say he has been suspended pending the outcome of the case against him, according to a WBBJ report.
