Wednesday, police released 911 tapes that give us a first-hand account of what went down in the hours after BAPD says a woman shot her ex-husband and staged it to look like a suicide.
Investigators said the story Judith Nix told didn't add up, and she’s now in jail, facing first-degree murder charges in the death of Kenneth Nix.
In the 911 tapes seem to reveal Judith had a calm demeanor and could be heard laughing at times.
“Somebody has shot him. He has passed away." That is one of the first things Judith told dispatchers when she claimed she dropped by Kenneth’s Broken Arrow home to bring him dinner.
Dispatcher: “Okay and you say someone shot him?”
Judith Nix: “It looks like someone shot him. There’s a gun lying right by his left hand.”
Judith Nix: “And, uh…it's the best I can tell. I didn't want to touch anything."
Then dispatch asked her about his state of mind.
Dispatcher: “Been suicidal at all?”
Judith Nix: Yes, he’s very despondent, he’s got so many health issues. Neuropathy is getting so painful he just can’t deal with it anymore…He is so active he can’t hardly deal with this.”
Judith Nix then mentioned she heard sirens in the distance.
Dispatch: “Let me know when you see them.
Judith Nix: “They're turning in.
Dispatch: “Okay. I’m going to let you go.
Police say Judith Nix told her two adult daughters about what happened and neither reported it to police until she called 911 much later.
One daughter, Michel Davis-Pearson, has been arrested for accessory after the fact.
