Woman arrested for murder of a Kenyan man in Texas
A Rhome woman has been arrested for the shooting death of her former husband last Friday night.
Marie Kendale Kimani, 35, was arrested at her home in the 12600 block of Forest Lawn Rhome in the Shale Creek Neighborhood east of Rhome late Wednesday night.
The home was the location where 40-year-old Jonathon Tumbo was found dead last week by officers responding to a call from Kimani about an altercation between the two.
Tumbo was killed by a single gunshot wound to the chest. Officers took a statement about what happened from Kimani, who said the two were involved in a physical altercation.
“Subsequent follow up investigation by WCSO investigators and related evidence was not consistent with Kimani’s account of a physical altercation,” the sheriff’s office stated in a news release.
Kimani’s bond was set at $1 million, and she remained in the Wise County Jail Thursday afternoon.
