Two arrests have so far been made in the murder of David Evans, the pastor of Harmony Free Will Baptist Church in Ada, Oklahoma.
A few days after the 50-year-old man was shot to death in his bed in the middle of the night, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation has arrested Evans’ wife, Kristie, and an accomplice, 26-year-old Kahlil Deamie Square, in connection with the murder.
According to the Ada Police Department, Evans revealed Thursday that she hired Square to murder her husband. She told investigators that she provided him with a gun and bullets, then left the backdoor unlocked for him to enter the couple’s house unannounced.
In a horrific twist, authorities say that all three of them were allegedly involved in a love triangle.
“A couple of months ago is when the three of them first met up,” OBSI Capt. Beth Green told reporters. “The three of them, Kristie, Kahlil and David, had a sexual relationship. Kristie and Kahlil also had a separate sexual relationship, just the two of them,” Green said.
According to court documents, the sinister murder plot was orchestrated last week while David was away on a mission trip in Mexico.
“The plan was for Kahlil to come into the house in the middle of the night and shoot David with the gun and ammunition that actually owned by David that Kristie had given Kahlil,” Green said.
Kristie Evans and Kahlil Square both face first-degree murder charges. Evans is being held in the Pontotoc County Detention Center while Square presently sits in Cleveland County Jail.
