It has just come to light that Darren Wilson (pictured), the white Ferguson, Missouri police officer fatally shot 18-year-old Michael Brown this past summer has reportedly tied the knot with Barbara Spradling, a colleague in the Ferguson police department. The couple’s nuptials were held on October 24 in a civil ceremony that was reportedly devoid of any fanfare whatsoever, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Wilson, 28 and Spradling, 36 were quietly joined in matrimony by attorney and municipal court Judge Christopher Graville. Wilson, who had been previously married to Ashley Brown, divorced her after only being together for not quite a year and a half. The couple’s divorce was finalized on November 18, 2013. This is Spradling’s first marriage.
Wilson is accused of pulling the trigger and killing an unarmed Brown on August 9. Currently, a grand jury is in the throes of determining if there is probable cause to indict Wilson.
