ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) — A woman who is charged with murder in the death of her husband admitted to a friend she shot and killed her husband, according to new court records. Nancy Khan, 33, was taken into custody after her husband, Ali Khan, 34, was found dead in the couple’s home on Los Alamos Court last month.
Williamson County Sheriff’s officials say Ali was shot five times in the torso and twice in the head. Police say Nancy then drove to a friend’s house in Stockdale, Texas, and admitted that she shot and killed her husband.
According to an arrest affidavit, Nancy told officers she left their home on Friday, Feb. 27 between 1 a.m. and 3 a.m. after an argument with her husband. She said she only returned to the home after Ali’s coworker called about his welfare. Nancy claimed that money and jewelry had been taken from the home, but detectives later found Ali’s watch in Nancy’s vehicle along with a pair of pants with blood on them.
Authorities also found a shell casing for a 9mm handgun next to Ali’s body and a box for a 9mm pistol inside Nancy’s vehicle, but still have not found the weapon, court documents show. A search warrant revealed there was blood on the bottom of Nancy’s left and right foot — which is consistent with the bloody footprint at the home, according to the affidavit.
Court documents also said a second set of bloody footprints were found near Ali’s body. Authorities say they do not know who the footprint belongs to or whether someone else was involved in the murder.
Nancy and Ali had a history of domestic violence. Nancy was charged in January with misdemeanor assault/family violence stemming from an August 2014 incident where she allegedly bit and kicked Ali.
She is being held in the Williamson County Jail in lieu of $2 million bond.
