A man who joked on Family Feud about regretting marrying his wife now on trial for her murder

What was shared as a joke on Family Feud, turns out to be something personal.

Timothy Blienfnick was arrested on March 13 and charged with two counts of first-degree murder and one count of home invasion in relation to the death of his wife, Rebecca Bliefnick, in Quincy, Illinois.

In 2020, Blienfnick appeared in an episode of ‘Family Feud,’ where he joked about his biggest mistake in his wedding is saying “I do,” receiving a mix of laughter and gasps from the audience. A year later, the Blienfnicks filed for divorce.

According to a report, court records show that the couple was in the process of divorce at the time of Rebecca’s death, and she also filed for an order of protection from Timothy in 2021.

During the testament of Sarah Reilly, Rebecca’s sister, she said that Rebecca told her that she was worried Timothy might physically harm her, KHQA reported.

“If something ever happens to me, make sure the number one person of interest is Tim, I am putting this in writing that I’m fearful he will somehow harm me,” Rebecca texted Sarah in 2021.

Rebecca was found by her father, William Postle, who told the jurors that on February 23, he found his daughter dead in her bathroom after she failed to pick her three kids up from school.

She was shot “Not once. Not twice. Not three times. But 14 times, riddling her body with bullets,” prosecutor Josh Jones said.

Prior to her death, Jones said that Rebecca bought a CZ 75 pistol for protection that she wanted to get back from Timothy.

The prosecutor also shared how Bliefnick did an internet search, including how to use a crowbar to open a window, how to make a homemade silencer, and the local police response time.

The trial for the 39-year-old began on Monday and was scheduled to continue until Friday.
