The wife of slain Oklahoma Pastor has been arrested alongside someone that’s is being held on suspicion of being the shooter, and who apparently has having a sexual affair with the wife.
Pastor David Evans was shot at his home in Ada, Oklahoma, at night or early in the morning and according to the wife’s initial account, she was present at home with the husband in bed at the time of the shooting. She is the one that would dial 911 following the fatal shooting.
The 47-year-old pastor’s wife said she awoke to a “pop” and smelled smoke before seeing her husband, David Evans, bleeding from his nose and mouth and a hole in his head, police say.
Evans told investigators her husband was making a “gasping noise” as she went outside to see anyone leaving their home early Monday in Ada, Oklahoma, according to court documents.
Following investigations and now obtained CCTV footage, police have now challenged her testimony as a witness and are holding her as a co-conspirator for the murder of Pastor David.
The killing shocked Harmony Free Will Baptist Church, where David Evans, 50, was a pastor, KXII reported. The church organized a meal train for the pastor’s family, the news outlet reported.
Five days before the shooting, a neighbor recalled seeing a white Ford Mustang parked at the Evans’ home, and surveillance video the night of the shooting captured a similar vehicle slowly driving in front of the residence, according to court documents.
During an interview at her husband’s church, Kristie Evans said the car belonged to a man she knew only as “Kahlil.” The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation later identified him as 26-year-old Kahlil Deamie Square.
Evans told investigators she, her husband and Square met at a Super 8 hotel several months earlier, where the three had sex multiple times, according to court documents.
The week before his death, David Evans went on a mission trip to Mexico. While her husband was out of town, Kristie Evans invited Square to stay three nights and they had sex, according to court documents.
They also plotted to kill the pastor, police say. During an interview Wednesday, Evans told investigators she asked Square to kill her husband, according to court documents. She would later supply the gun and bullets used in the heinous crime.
