Although fathers might have a stronger connection to their daughters than most, according to St. Paul Police in Minnesota, Johnny Ray Aldridge took his attachment to his 13-year-old too far after Aldridge killed his wife because he thought she was prostituting their daughter whom he thought was pregnant as the result. 

Law enforcement said Aldridge believed that his daughter’s mother was making the teen engage in sexual acts with men, and Aldridge wanted his daughter to have a rape exam, but she denied the request.  She reportedly told her father that she suffered from severe menstrual cramps the week before.

Apparently, Aldridge and his wife exchanged heated words and that’s when she made fun of his claims and the situation turned fatal.

“They tussled on the bed,” stated court documents. “[Caitlin Aldridge’s wife] laughed off his daughter being pregnant. [Her] response angered Aldridge so much he shot her once in the back of the head with the gun he kept beneath his pillow,” a law official said.

Sources say 46-year-old Aldridge and his wife had been married for over a decade.   After her mother’s death, the teen took the pregnancy test which came back negative  

Law enforcement discovered that Aldridge’s wife had been murdered after he turned himself into a Ramsey County local police station and confessed.

“Johnny Aldridge was saying that his daughter was either raped or had become pregnant,” said Steve Linders, a spokesman for St. Paul police.  Linders added, “there’s no evidence to corroborate Aldridge’s claim about her daughter being pregnant, and “she repeatedly denied being raped.”

Aldridge, who is currently being held on a $1 million bond, faces a second-degree murder charge. He could spend up to 40 years in prison if found guilty.
