Ian Alamilla met his future wife Tara under circumstances fit for a movie. Tara was visiting the Central American country of Belize where Ian worked as a scuba instructor at the resort where she stayed. The two met and fell in love, eventually prompting Ian to relocate to Westmont.
Unfortunately, seven years and three children later, the couple's relationship did not have a Hollywood ending. Instead, Tara sought to divorce her husband. And in an act of rage on April 2010, a DuPage County court found that Ian strangled his wife to death following a late-night argument, reports The Associated Press.
