This man had a history of domestic abuse and his wife even told people he’d threatened to kill her and had filed for an order of protection.
James Schumacher, 71, walked into the Bellevue Police Department on the afternoon of March 23 and announced that he had killed his wife two days prior.
Officers went to a home on the 100 block of 159th Avenue Southeast in Bellevue and found the body of his wife Jean, Bellevue police spokeswoman Carla Iafrate said. James, who said he was tired of his wife’s verbal abuse and had killed her with a hatchet, was subsequently arrested for first-degree murder.
The couple had been married for 46 years and have two children who both live locally. They had a history of domestic violence.
In 2010, Jean filed for a restraining order against James as a result of physical and verbal abuse. In the court documents, Jean reveals that she feared for her life and that her husband threatened to kill her.
“He wasn’t very nice to her a lot of the time,” said Mary Farrell, a neighbor and friend of the Schumachers. “I talked to her. She told me a few things that made their marriage very difficult.”
“He knocked her down a few times,” Farrell said. “The last time, he pushed her and she fell. With her arthritis, she ended up in the hospital for a few days.”
Farrell added that Jean had confided there was ongoing abuse.
In probable cause documents that were released Monday, police said that James told them Jean had threatened him with divorce and then locked herself in her bedroom.
He then told police he and his wife had separate bedrooms and that after stewing all night over her divorce request, he grabbed a hatchet out of the garage in the morning. He then broke into her bedroom and killed her while she was sleeping. He then placed her body under the bed and left it there until he notified police of what he had done two days later.
James had worked for 17 years each at Boeing and U.S. Steel. He is being held in King County Jail. His bail has been set at $1 million.
Documents released also state that James indicated to police that he would flee the state.
This is a damn shame. 46 years of marriage, two grown kids and he kills her! Everyone already knew this dude wasn’t shyte and let that old lady die like that.

Is this going too far?
Thursday afternoon at a press conference, the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense circulated a “wanted dead or alive” poster for George Zimmerman for shooting to death a Florida teenager four weeks ago.
Zimmerman, a self-proclaimed neighborhood watch captain said he accosted what he alleges was a suspicious looking black male walking through his neighborhood. He further contends the man punched him, and bloodied his nose, so Zimmerman fired a gun shot striking the man in the chest. The “man” was 17 year old Trayvon Martin, who would lie in the county morgue three days before police alerted his parents of their child’s death.
Minister Mikhail Muhummud led the press conference, calling for the firing of Sanford Police Chief Bill Lee, the arrest of George Zimmerman and some involvement from President Obama. Muhummud stated he is the southern regional director for the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense located in Jacksonville, Florida. While Minister Muhummud fired off a list of demands and expressed outrage over the handling of the shooting and subsequent investigation; a member of the group passed flyers to about 100 people who showed up for the press conference. Muhummud told the group he was not concerned with rumors of death threats to George Zimmerman, “He should be afraid for his life…”
Muhummud said “I’m here today to appeal to the country, particularly President Obama to do the right thing while you have the power.” He said that “Trayvon Martin “symbolizes my son.”
President Obama had not addressed the issue, but had advised the Justice Department to open an investigation into the case. This morning following Muhummud’s press conference, President Obama spoke about the case for the first time publicly. He echoed the sentiments of Muhummud saying “If I had a son, he would look like Trayvon…”
When the group started chanting “Black Power,” Ms. Adele Azarucquoi, a white long time resident of Sanford shouted, “What about White people.”
Muhummud quickly said “We don’t hate any group. We hate injustice. We appreciate the whites who have come forth to help us.”
There were less than a dozen whites, not counting media, among the mostly African American crowd. “I hope there are more people who look like me at the next rally for Trayvon’s family,” Ms. Azarucquoi said.
After the news conference Ms. Azarucquoi told a journalist, “This heart of mine is sick when a kid gets killed because his skin is different from the skin of the guy who shoots him.”
She then requested that a journalist walk across the street with her to speak with Police Chief Bill Lee. Upon arrival at his office the receptionist said he wasn’t in the office then said “he hasn’t been in the office in several days.”
Later in the day Chief Lee announced he was temporarily stepping down.
Present at the news conference was Ms. Mildred Duprey de Robles, Conciliation Specialist for the United States Justice Department’s Office of Community Relations. Ms. Duprey de Robles declined to speak with the press other than to say she was there as an observer.
The Justice Department’s office of Community Relations is mandated to help negotiate peaceful resolutions to community problems. She appeared to have gotten an earful and left quickly when the press insisted on more communication from her.
Members of the public who came in support of the New Black Panther Party’s press conference were vocal in their outrage over the shooting and investigation. They called for the dismantling of “the good ole boy network.”
Pastor Paul Wright, whose 1000 member church, Calvary Temple Praises, is several blocks from the police department, dropped by the press conference. When asked about the “wanted dead or alive” poster Pastor Wright said, “I don’t agree with that. We don’t need to set a precedent that this is the way to resolve problems.”
Life is precious. That’s what this is all about, so it seems senseless to call for Zimmerman’s death, doesn’t it?

SMH. Clearly the NBA needs to step up their 401 K plan.
Former NBA player Tate George was indicted Friday by a Newark grand jury for allegedly orchestrating a $2 million Ponzi scheme, the US Department of Justice said.
George, who played four seasons of professional basketball as a guard for the New Jersey Nets and the Milwaukee Bucks, was indicted on four counts of wire fraud.
Prosecutors alleged that George raised more than $2 million from investors between 2005 and 2011, claiming it would be used to finance George Group, his supposed real estate investment business.
However, prosecutors said George Group had virtually no business at the time. Instead, the money was allegedly used to repay prior investors, to fund home-improvement projects and to pay for meals, clothing and gasoline.
Under the wire fraud counts with which he is charged, George faces a maximum potential penalty of 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for each count.
An attorney for George wasn’t immediately available for comment.
This guy looks like a complete doofus. We can’t believe anybody would even trust him with their money to begin with.
