“What I could not understand, and I still can’t understand, is how he got my husband out this house,” she said.
Police are still investigating that and trying to figure out the motive.
Page said she doesn't know anything about the suspect, so after the murder she sent a friend next door to speak to a woman living there.
The woman said she was in the house with her baby when all of this happened – but didn’t see anything.
“She said she was locked up in room with the baby in there and he was privy to the kitchen and the bathroom and she said she heard noises but didn’t know what it was and I guess she was in there frantic to come out because that same morning they attempted to evict him and he had nowhere to go,” Page said.
The suspect has a preliminary hearing Thursday morning. Page told Fernandes that she’ll be there to look the suspect in the eye and see if he'll say anything in court.
