Jennifer Faith is the wife of James Faith. Lopez of Cumberland Furnace, Tennessee, was arrested by local authorities on January 11 and charged with murder. Later, federal authorities charged him with transporting a firearm in interstate commerce.
Jennifer Faith Charged
The wife of a Dallas man allegedly gunned down by her paramour has been charged with obstruction of justice, announced Acting U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas Prerak Shah.
Jennifer Lynne Faith was charged at her residence in Oak Cliff on Wednesday, charged via criminal complaint with one count of destruction of an object with the intent to obstruct a federal investigation.
The complaint was unsealed on Thursday. Ms. Faith will make her initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Renee Toliver on Friday.
“Even as she publicly claimed she was desperate for answers regarding her husband’s murder, Jennifer Faith was communicating with the alleged killer, actively urging him to destroy evidence and attempting to delete incriminating communications from her phone,” said U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah.

“Thanks to the dedication of our agents and officers, Ms. Faith could not keep law enforcement from identifying her husband’s killer. Even so, we cannot allow her obstruction of justice to stand. We are determined to hold her accountable for her crime.”
James Faith Death
James Faith was killed on October 9 after he was shot seven times while walking in his Oak Cliff neighborhood with his wife, Jennifer. About two months after the crime, Jennifer spoke to the local media and demanded justice.
James Faith, who worked as a chief technology officer at American Airlines, died after being shot multiple times while walking his dog with Jennifer.
Almost two months after James Faith’s death, WFAA spoke to Jennifer in her first television interview on December 2. She said that she had no idea who killed her husband.
“I just hope that at some point this person can recognize the seriousness of what he has done. And feel some kind of guilt enough to come forward,” Jennifer said during that interview. “I’m not supposed to be a widow at 48.”
