Gregory Eldred, 53, of Coudersport, avoided a possible death penalty by pleading guilty to first-degree murder and will instead receive a mandatory life term without parole when he returns for sentencing by a Potter County judge on Tuesday.
Eldred acknowledging that he gunned down 53-year-old Darlene Sitler at the First United Presbyterian Church of Coudersport on Dec. 2. The church is about 140 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Until the shooting, Eldred had been an elementary school music teacher in the Coudersport Area School District since 1986 and played clarinet for the Southern Tier Symphony Orchestra in nearby Allegany, N.Y. His ex-wife had taught music at the Northern Potter Children's School in a neighboring district for 30 years.
After the facts of his crimes were recited in court, Potter County Judge Stephen Minor asked Eldred, "Are those facts accurate?
Investigators have never detailed the precise motive for the shooting though District Attorney Andy Watson provided a partial explanation during Wednesday's plea hearing, saying Eldred killed his wife over "information she possessed."
According to the state police, Eldred shot his ex-wife while she sat at the organ during church service and, after leaving briefly, returned and shot her again to ensure she was dead.
Pastor Evon Lloyd told police that Eldred entered the church wearing a hooded jacket and "leveled a gun at the victim and shot," according to the criminal complaint.
Sitler fell into the organ pit before Eldred left the building and put a handgun on the hood of his vehicle while those inside called 911 and aided Sitler.
Another witness, Leslie Rolfe, said Eldred picked up the gun about five minutes later, while Rolfe tried to hold the church doors shut but couldn't.
Eldred then walked toward his ex-wife saying, "I got to see her.
State police arrived minutes later and took Eldred into custody without incident.

Greg Eldred, Coudersport School District music teacher and alleged shooter
Greg Eldred, an elementary music teacher at Coudersport School, allegedly entered a side door to the church and fired two shots at his ex-wife, Darlene Sitler, killing her instantly.
Members of the congregation were able to subdue Eldred and held him until police arrived.
Witnesses tell CoudyNews the shooter was pacing in front of the church doors for some time before he entered.
Mr Eldred was a terrific teacher. My heart breaks for everyone involved. Unbelievable.
Mr. Eldred taught me how to play my first instrument, and I remember him as being so patient and kind-I never would have expected him to do something so terrible. I met Ms. Sitler several times too, and she was was a lovely woman.
Someone may have at least been able to prevent Eldred from entering a second time....
