Longview, TX — A Marshall man charged with killing his wife left her blood-covered body in the bathroom of a hotel room after stabbing and cutting her multiple times, according to an arrest affidavit filed in the City of Marshall Municipal Court.
Officers responding to a disturbance call Sunday morning arrived to find two children in the lobby who said “they think their dad killed their mom,” the document indicated.
Brad Allen Dunn, 35, was arrested Sunday afternoon in Cass County.
On Monday, he was charged with murder in connection with the death of 31-year-old Kari Rene Dunn.
Dunn, who had been held under $5.1 million bond in the Cass County Jail, was transferred Tuesday afternoon to the Harrison County Jail, said Lt. Jay Webb of the Harrison County Sheriff’s Office.
The affidavit, which was filed Monday, provides more detail about the scene officers encountered when they were called about 11:15 a.m. Sunday to the Baymont Inn and Suites in the 5300 block of East End Boulevard.
Marshall police questioned an unidentified hotel guest who said he heard screaming in the hallway.
