The lover of a former football player kidnapped and then killed his wife before turning the gun on herself, authorities said.
Lisa Brown, 49, allegedly kidnapped Sandra Barnett, 58, from her Clayton, Georgia, home on Wednesday, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
The following day, Brown led police on a chase that crossed into Alabama's Cleburne County before Brown shot and killed Barnett and then took her own life, authorities said.
Barnett is the wife of former Buffalo Bills player Buster Barnett.
"She was upset about a trip that his wife was going on with him and it was one she didn’t know about,” Clayton Police spokeswoman Charlene Watson-Fraser said.
Neighbors told police they noticed Brown's Dodge Durango outside Barnett's home the day of the alleged kidnapping, WXIA reports.
Carroll County Sheriff's deputies later noticed the Durango on Interstate 20 and gave chase.
On the day she died, Brown was on probation for kidnapping her child, whom she lost in a custody battle in Texas, according to Yahoo Sports.
CORRECTION: A previous headline on this article misidentified Buster Barnett as Buster Brown.
