Former ‘Family Feud’ Contestant, Who Mocked Marriage on TV, Receives Life Sentence for Fatally Shooting Wife 14 Times


A man who once contested in the popular TV show, “Family Feud” and trashed his marriage on the show was hit with a life prison sentence last week, for killing his wife.

Timothy Bliefnick, 40, was found guilty in May of breaking into the home of his estranged wife, Rebecca “Becky” Postle Bliefnick, and shooting her 14 times.

Prosecutors said Bliefnick who was on the “Family Feud” episode in 2019 and got divorced two years later, even went on Google to research how to pull off the murder, including how to force open a window with a crowbar and police response time.

“You practiced this murder,” the judge said. “You broke into her house, and you shot her one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 times.

“I don’t know how long it took you to do that, but some of those shots were fired while she was lying on the ground,” the judge said. “And you did all of that while you’re children were upstairs at your house, lying snug in their beds.”

The victim’s bullet-riddled body was found by her father on February 23.

Bliefnick was arrested and went on trial in May, with jurors convicting him of first-degree murder after a week-long trial.

The couple have three children. They got married in 2009 but divorced in 2021, with Postle Bliefnick telling her sister shortly before her death that she feared her ex.

“I am putting this in writing that I’m fearful he will somehow harm me, come after me, or will try to [do] something to me that takes me away from the kids or the kids away from me,” she texted her sister.

“He already has lied multiple times to paint himself as a victim and me as the perpetrator when it is absolutely the other way around,” she told sibling Sarah Reilly.

Bliefnick was a contestant on “Family Feud” in an episode that aired in 2020 and called his marriage a mistake.

His wife wasn’t on his family panel at the time.

“What’s the biggest mistake you made at your wedding,” host Steve Harvey asked him on the show.

“Honey, I love you, but said, ‘I do,’” Bliefnick answered. “Not my mistake. Not my mistake. I love my wife.

“I’m gonna get in trouble for that, aren’t I?” he added.
