According to the complaint, Rhonda Jordan was taken to Wilson N. Jones Hospital on the morning of Jan. 6. Officers said John Frances Kennedy admitted that he had taken Jordan to the hospital and that he had called police to report her injuries.
Due to the severity of Jordan's injuries, she was taken from Wilson N. Jones Hospital to Plano Medical Center, where she died five days later.
On Tuesday, Sherman Police arrested Kennedy, 57, on a felony family violence warrant.
But according to Grayson County's online jail records, Kennedy posted bond and was released on Wednesday.
"Yesterday I saw him. He had came down the road and pulled in," said Michelle Davis, a neighbor.
Neighbors say they were shocked to see him.
"They were packing up stuff out of the house," said Davis. "He took a bunch of stuff out.
"We saw that she passed away. Why isn't he locked up? He should be sitting in jail right now or at least prison," Davis said.
"Justice needs to be served and he just needs to be sitting in jail. That's just what needs to happen," said Derric Ebel, another neighbor.
Now they say they're taking measures to stay safe themselves.
"He's got his tactics, I've got my own," Ebel said.
"Other parents that live on this street would agree. Now we all have to lock our doors at night because we're scared that somebody might break in. We don't know what it was about or if he'd do it to someone else," Davis said.
