Husband indicted in death of wife allegedly killed by stray bullet


A Texarkana, Texas, man is accused of firing the bullet that struck his wife as she walked down an alley near the scene of a fight in January.

Travon Martreas Walker, 27, was indicted for murder Friday by a Bowie County grand jury in the Jan. 31 death of his wife, Kaitlin Lee. According to a probable cause affidavit, Walker fired a handgun at a man who had been involved shortly before in a physical confrontation with one of Walker’s friend’s in the 200 block of Apache Trail in Texarkana, Texas.

After the two men stopped fighting, Walker allegedly fired several shots in the direction of a man who’d been fighting with his friend. Investigators believe one of the bullets struck Lee as she walked in a nearby alley.

Walker faces five to 99 years or life if convicted of murder. He is currently being held in the Bowie County jail.
