A woman from the US broke into the house of her husband’s mistress and shot her before turning the gun on herself on Monday.

According to New York Post she allegedly also sought marriage advice online sometime before killing the mistress and herself.

“Please recommend an EXCELLENT marriage counsellor for a couple on the brink of divorce,” Jennair Gerardot (48) wrote in February on the NextDoor app.

“I just transferred to Delaware in December for my husband’s new job, and he’s telling me he wants a divorce.

“I don’t know anyone and I’m completely clueless to the area.”

Police said Jennair broke into Meredith Chapman’s home and fatally shot the 33-year-old woman when she walked in the door.

“The spurned wife then allegedly turned the gun on herself in the kitchen — just steps away from Chapman’s body,” officials added.

The scorned woman who was angry at Meredith for having an affair with her husband, Mark, is said to have disguised herself.

“Police believe Gerardot broke a glass pane in the door to get into the house, carefully cleaning up shards that had fallen to the floor so Chapman wouldn't suspect a break-in,” National Public Radio reported.

The police have described this as “a calculated attack”.

“Mark had gone to a restaurant where he thought he'd be meeting Chapman for dinner. When she didn't show up, he went to her house and found the bodies. He then called police,” NBC reported.

Jennair and Mark married in 1993, according to The News Journal.

“Chapman had recently started a new job at Villanova University as assistant vice president of marketing and creative services,” National Public Radio said.

Meredith was also married but didn’t live with her husband.

Jennair once described herself as a “highly-driven businesswoman” and an “environmentalist at heart” who loved animals and traveling, the Inquirer added.
