Wife of Ada pastor sentenced for his 2021 murder

ADA, Okla. — An Ada woman has been sentenced to life in prison, after pleading guilty to taking part in her husband’s 2021 murder.

Kristie Evans was sentenced Aug. 11 for for the first-degree murder of 50-year-old David Evans.

Evans was the pastor of Harmony Free Will Baptist Church in Ada. He was found shot in the head at the home he shared with Kristie in March 2021.

Kristie had told investigators at the time that an intruder had come in and shot her husband. Court records later show the man arrested along with Kristie, Kahlil Deamie Square, was actually her lover... but also described as David’s lover.

Court documents show Kristie told her daughter she “begged Kahlil to kill David” saying he was “verbally abusive and controlling.” The affidavit continues to say the three met at a Super 8 Motel on several occasions.

Kristie pleaded guilty in April.

Kahlil Square was also charged with murder. He is set to have a status hearing Aug. 25.
