A woman has been arrested in Texas for calling her husband to find the killer and moving his community.
Jennifer Faith alleges that federal police interfered with police work during the investigation.
Last October, the couple was shot and killed several times by their partner James while walking with their dog in a residential area of suburban Dallas.
The woman gave several interviews to the local media to explain the facts of the day and to ask for public help.
“I heard him running behind me and as I turned around someone started firing at him. He was shooting, he was shooting,” she told NBCDW shortly before Christmas.
“My hope is that this man can realize the gravity of what he has done to my daughter and me. My partner is a pillar of our family, we are doomed,” he added.
According to court documents, the shooter tied Jennifer’s hands with sticky paper before hitting her in an attempt to steal her jewelry.
Police finally arrested the woman this week for obstructing justice for her partner’s death.
She was taken to jail, where she is waiting for her next court appearance.
His arrest comes amid allegations that his childhood sweetheart, Darin Lopez, traveled from Tennessee to Texas to shoot James Faith last fall.
Mr. Lopez is currently facing murder charges
During their investigation, police found that the accused and Jennifer Faith, who had been dating in high school and university, exchanged more than 14,000 calls and texts between September 30 and October 30, 2020.
The lovers had a five-year (!) Plan to meet again for good.
Darren Lopez’s lawyer, Juan Sanchez, who contacted People magazine, said he was “still evaluating the evidence in the file”.
“But we believe Mr. Lopez is a man of integrity, with a military profession, who has been manipulated by Jennifer Faith into believing she is in danger.”
