SPOKANE, Wash. -

 

The wife of Spokane businessman Doug Carlile, Elberta Carlile says her husband was a kind man who was shot protecting her, she believes.

Elberta Carlile was in the home the night her husband Doug was murdered. Court documents say Elberta heard Doug pleading with the gunman saying "don't do anything", then she heard several gunshots.

The suspect, 50 year old Timothy Suckow, was in court on Tuesday. He's accused of killing Doug Carlile. For the first time the Carlile family saw the man police believe killed Doug.

"It was horrible. But there's a measure of comfort knowing that justice is going to be done," Elberta Carlile told KHQ's Dylan Wohlenhaus Tuesday.
 
Elberta says she and Doug talked about some of the business dealings Doug was involved in. Elberta said she and Doug had a moment of "comfort" just hours before he was murdered.

"He was holding my hand, rubbing my thumb. We were just encouraging one another that everything was going to be ok. Everything was going to work out."

Spokane Police detectives believe the motive for Carlile's murder were bad business dealings in North Dakota.
 
Tim E. Suckow is being charged with 1st Degree Premeditated Murder. He will be arraigned on formal charges on January 28th. Police also say more suspects could come from this investigation.
