A planned "vindictive suicide" ended pretty much as a simple assault, with no serious injuries, when a young Fort Bragg Soldier broke into the home of her husband in James City County, (not a typo)Virginia.
Newlywed, Pfc. Margaret Sarah Kloske, 24, suspected her husband of having an affair. Instead of planning harm to the alleged adulterers, “Maggie” decided to drive from Fort Bragg in central North Carolina, to her husband’s home in Virginia, and commit suicide in front of them.
Kloske’s plot was foiled by a locked door to her husband’s bedroom, at which she fired her loaded .45 cal. weapon.
Alfredo Alvarado, Jr., 23, the surprised husband, managed to disarm his wife and save his 19-year-old girlfriend from nothing worse than a head-beating from the cheated-on Soldier-wife.
Kloske was charged with breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony. She was also charged with discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling, malicious wounding and assault and battery.
News on the dysfunctional family didn't end there.
Alvarado, a student at the College of William and Mary, was arrested on two outstanding warrants for credit card theft and petty larceny charges. He is accused of stealing a credit card and some cash from a vehicle on Aug. 22.
Examiner’s Note: It appears that Alfredo Alvarado forgot the first rule of marriage….Quit dating!
