An Oklahoma woman and swinger ordered her lover to kill her husband. Now, she will spend decades behind bars.
Recently, Pontotoc County District Judge Steven Kessinger handed Kristie Evans, 49, a life term in prison with the possibility of parole for the shooting death of her husband Dave Evans, 50. Evans pleaded guilty to first-degree murder.
On March 22, 2021, authorities responded to the Ada, Oklahoma, home shared by the couple after the defendant reported a deadly home intrusion, as FrontPageDetectives previously reported. However, investigators did not buy into her story after Kahil Square, her co-defendant and lover’s car, was spotted at the house.
Due to insurmountable evidence, Evans finally admitted to the killing.
Evans described her husband, who pastored at Harmony Free Will Baptist Church in Ada, as charming and smooth on the outside, and abusive to her and their three children behind closed doors, reported NBC News.
Evans and Square met at a Super 8 motel, where they met for a threesome in January 2021. The orgies were a weekly norm for Dave Evans and his wife. The victim sought out men through Craiglist, and as a result, Evans told investigators her husband had forced her to have sex with 50 to 100 men.
Soon, Square and Evans started a relationship in her husband’s absence before she convinced him to help her escape the abusive marriage. According to prosecutors, on the day of the incident, Evans left a gun belonging to her husband outside the home, with the backdoor left unlocked.
Upon Square’s arrival at the home dressed in black, Evans assured him her husband was asleep, and it was the right time to strike. After Square shot Dave in the forehead and fled the scene, Evans held her husband’s hands and told him she was sorry as he gurgled and bled to death.
Authorities believe the defendant committed the homicide to cash in on her husband’s $250,000 life insurance policy.
Evans’ defense lawyer, Joi Miskel, asked the court for a 4-year sentence considering the domestic abuse she suffered at the hands of her sexually deviant husband, who lived a double life. However, Prosecutors argued Evans was a willing participant who had also written letters to other men while behind bars to boast about her sexual prowess.
"I could wear a man out. Any man would have done it for me after I got through with him," wrote Evans in one of her letters, according to The Oklahoman.
Evans and her husband were married for thirty years. She will be eligible for parole after serving 45 years in prison.
The 27-year-old Square was also charged with first-degree murder and pleaded not guilty. His case was adjourned to Aug. 25.
