The lawyer for an Alabama minister charged with murdering his wife said the pastor was in a "very dark place" at the time of the shooting.

Attorney Henry Lagman said Reverend Terry Greer had a string of health problems and other issues.

Greer is accused of shooting and killing his wife, Lisa Greer, and the wounding of their 18-year-old daughter on January 10th. Police said he then stabbed himself multiple times.

Greer remains hospitalized and was placed on a ventilator after developing pneumonia.

Police said he'll be taken to jail without bond after his release.
