The wife of a slain Lebanon city police officer has been indicted for his murder and taken into custody this week.
Police have charged Tonya Ford, 37, in the murder of her husband, David Ford.
Police say that in February of 2009, Ford was found shot to death in the couple’s home in Taylor County.
Investigators have said all along that they didn’t think Ford’s murder was related to his police job.
Ford was off duty at the time of his death.
Tips to Crime Stoppers helped the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office to identify the suspects from the bold December 15th robbery.
David Ford, Jr. and Winifred Guillen were charged with robbery with a deadly weapon and Jessie McCambridge-Ford was charged with grand theft.
Guillen and Ford were in the Best Buy according to authorities trying to steal four HP laptops when they were confronted by the store’s security person.
Detectives say Ford pointed a knife at the officer threatening to cut him if he did not get away. McCambridge-Ford, according to deputies, drove the getaway vehicle that was taken from JB Auto Sales under the pretense she was using it for a test drive.
All three subjects were arrested without incident.
