The wife of a pastor in Oklahoma worked with her lover to kill her husband.
Police took Kristie Dawnell Evans of Ada, Oklahoma, into custody on Thursday after she confessed to murdering her husband. The entire incident started when Evans called the police on March 22 and claimed that an intruder broke into her home and killed her husband.
The woman said the intruder shot her husband around 1 a.m. When police arrived at the scene, the 50-year-old pastor was found dead at the location. The police had been investigating the incident for three days when Evans, 47, came clean and confessed to the crime. Authorities eventually found out that Evans had worked with another person who they learned was her lover on the side.
According to The Daily Beast, Kahlil Deamie Square, 26, and Evans “had a sexual relationship that also included David at one point as well,” per an affidavit in connection to interviews with Evans by investigators, Yahoo! News reports. Evans claimed her husband was “was verbally abusive” and “controlling of her” and called her names like “slut, fat, ugly, and whore.”
Square and Evans have both been charged with first-degree murder. “This investigation was truly a team effort,” said Director of the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, Ricky Adams. “OSBI agents from across the state worked tirelessly on this investigation for days. With the help of OSBI intelligence analysts and multiple law enforcement agencies, the suspects responsible for Evans’ murder are in custody. Our team will always follow the evidence and find the truth.”
