Pastor’s wife gets life in Ada murder
ADA, Okla. (KXII) - The wife of an Ada pastor who helped her lover kill him last year was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday.
Kristie Evans, 49, who pleaded guilty to first degree murder in April, was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Evans must serve 85% of 45 years, meaning she will not be eligible for parole until 2060.
Also charged with first degree murder is Kahlil Square, a man with whom both she and her husband, Dave Evans, were sexually involved with before she hatched a plan to to let Square into their home to kill Mr. Evans.
Dave Evans served as the pastor of Harmony Free Will Baptist Church in Ada.
On Wednesday Special agent Justin Brown with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation was called to the stand.
Brown answered the state and defendants’ questions about his interview process with Mrs. Evans.
Both attorneys gave their closing arguments before letting the court make their decision.
On Tuesday, Evans gave her testimony where she admitted to being raped repeatedly by her husband . Throughout the six interviews conducted by Agent Brown, she reportedly failed to mention she and her accomplice Kahlil Deamie Square are charged with first degree murder.
Evans admitted that her husband and herself were in a sexual relationship with Square. The affidavit states Mrs. Evans gave Square her husband’s 9 millimeter pistol and ammunition used in the murder.
OSBI did not yet disclose whether or not they have located the murder weapon.
Mrs. Evans will be 87 years old before she is eligible for parole.
Square is due back in court later this month
