Woman arrested in connection with fatal shooting of a Kenyan man in Texas


A woman has been arrested in connection with the murder of a Kenyan man which happened last Friday night in Wise County Texas.

Marie Kendale Kimani, 35, was arrested at her home late Wednesday night.

Last week, 40 year old Jonathan Kimani Tumbo was found deceased at the address.

Authorities found Tumbo dead last week by when responding to a call from Kimani about an altercation between the two. Tumbo had succumbed to a single gunshot wound to his chest.

When questioned by police, Kimani said that the two had a physical altercation but on subsequent follow up investigation by investigators and related evidence, her account did not seem to match their findings.

Kimani’s bond was set at $1 million, and she remained in the Wise County Jail Thursday afternoon.
