Pastor, Wife And Daughter Reportedly Accused Of Robbing Sunday School Teacher Over Affair — Video

The AME church is definitely not going to like this story…

A Ohio pastor and his family are accused of a violent theft from a Sunday school teacher at the church. 

Anthony Morris, a 49-year-old pastor at St. Paul's AME Zion Church in downtown Toledo, was arrested along with his wife Zelda for the alleged attack over the weekend.

The gun-wielding pastor and two members of his family attacked and robbed a Sunday school teacher at their church in Toledo. The family reportedly attacked the woman over an affair she allegedly had with the preacher. 

St. Paul's AME Zion Church Pastor Anthony Morris, 49, along with his wife, Zelda Morris, 46, and 19-year-old daughter Kamali Morris, are each charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon, a first-degree felony. 



Their teen daughter Kamali has yet to be located by authorities.

The Sunday school teacher's daughter claimed the Morris family attacked her mother over an alleged affair. 

The police report stated that the pastor's wife, Zelda, told the teacher's daughter, "You wanna know why this happened? It happened because your mom slept with my husband."



Nickema Turner, 39, was in her class teaching over the weekend when the pastor's teen daughter grabbed her by the hair. The pastor and his wife began to beat the woman, according to the police report. 


The pastor's wife punched Turner in the face, while the pastor threw her to the ground. 

Their daughter grabbed Turner's purse and took items including two prescription bottles, a stun gun and a cellphone.  

Turner was attempting to recover her belongings when the pastor allegedly pulled out a gun and pointed it at her. The woman told police the pastor threatened to kill her.  


The Morris family, who reside in the 3000 block of Evergreen Road, fled the church before police arrived. 

Turner suffered swelling above her eye and was treated at the scene by Toledo Fire and Rescue crews, according to the police report.

Turner and several eye witnesses verified the information to police.

Anthony and Zelda appeared in Toledo Municipal Court on Tuesday. The judge, Nicole Khoury, set bond at $75,000 for each. They were also ordered to have no contact with Nickema Turner.
