The man accused of murdering his wife made a joke about marriage on the game show ‘Family Feud’, expressing his regret for saying ‘I do’

Timothy Bliefnick, who has been charged with murdering his estranged wife, Becky Bliefnick, once appeared on the television game show “Family Feud” with his family.

Following his arrest, some of Bliefnick’s comments made during the show have drawn attention, including an ominous remark in which he expressed regret for getting married.

Becky Bliefnick was found dead in her Quincy home on Feb. 23, 2023, after she failed to pick up their sons from school.

“What’s your biggest mistake you made at your wedding?” host Steve Harvey asked in an episode that aired in January 2020.

“Honey, I love you,” Bliefnick said, addressing his wife before turning to Harvey and answering cautiously, “Said, ‘I do?’”

The response drew both gasps and laughter from the studio audience.

“Not my mistake, not my mistake — I love my wife,” Bliefnick emphasized. “I’m gonna get in trouble for that, aren’t I?”

Timothy Bliefnick and Becky Bliefnick, who worked as a nurse and was a devoted mother, tied the knot in 2009. However, they had been living apart for a few years and were in the midst of getting a divorce when Becky was killed.

Court records cited by KHQA revealed that Becky had previously obtained a restraining order against both Timothy and his father, while Timothy had also sought a restraining order against Becky.

“This is an act of domestic violence. Every victim needs to be seen, heard and believed,” Assistant State’s Attorney Josh Jones said in as statement. “While our thoughts and prayers are with Rebecca Bliefnick’s family and her children, our focus and efforts remain on bringing her murderer to justice.”

Bliefnick appeared in court for the first time on Tuesday in Adams County, but he did not enter a plea. He has asserted his innocence in relation to the murder.

His lawyer, Casey Schnack, told Fox News that she was preparing a series of court filings “to protect his interests and preserve his constitutional rights.”
