ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — Court documents released Tuesday revealed new details in the shooting death of 34-year-old Ali Khan. His wife, Nancy, is charged with tampering with evidence and is being held on $1 million bond.
Police were called about 1 p.m. Saturday to their Round Rock home on Los Alamos Court after one of Ali’s coworkers found him shot to death inside a bathroom. The coworker first went to the home at 11 a.m. to check on Ali after he did not show up to work at Round Rock Kia, where he was the general manager. When no one answered the door, the man called Nancy, who said she was on her way back to the house. He waited about two hours for Nancy to get home and heard her scream after she walked into the house, prompting him to go inside.
Investigators also said they found a set of shoeprints, likely from a man, in a puddle of blood next to Ali’s body. A set of smaller bloody footprints were found next to that, the affidavit said. A search warrant was obtained to swab Nancy’s feet for DNA and the presence of blood, and court documents say the swab found blood on both of her feet.
Detectives say they are still combing through phone records and other evidence to track down the person who left the shoeprints.
Authorities also found items Nancy claimed were stolen from the home inside her vehicle, the affidavit said. Additionally, police say items had been added to the murder scene after Ali was killed. The document also said Nancy provided several inconsistent statements about her whereabouts during the suspected time frame when Ali was killed.
The Williamson County Clerk’s office said Ali and Nancy Khan were married in December. Nancy Khan, formerly Nancy Flores, was charged in January with misdemeanor assault/family violence stemming from an August 2014 incident where she allegedly bit and kicked Ali Khan.
Police have not charged anyone yet with murder in Ali Khan’s death.
