61-year-old ex con Henry Tenon has been arrested and charged in the death of Jared Bridegan. Tennon has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, accessory after the fact to a capital felony, child abuse and second-degree murder. The child abuse charge comes as Bridegan's 2-year-daughter is in the car when he was shot.  The conspiracy charge means more arrests are expected, but the documents related to the arrest are sealed. An investigation shows that Tennon once lived in a home owned by ex-wife Shanna Gardner-Fernandez's new husband Mario Fernandez. 

The night the 33-year-old Microsoft executive was shot, he drops his twins off at the home of his ex-wife, Shanna Gardner-Fernandez. Bridegan is with his 2-year-daughter as he drives home. On their way home, Bridegan stops to remove a tire from the middle of the road. There's no room to drive around it.

That's when the Microsoft executive is shot and killed by an unknown assailant. The little girl, Bexley, is reportedly in the car for several minutes as her father dies. Bridegan has been in lengthy custody and alimony disputes with his former wife and reportedly she has now hired a high-powered criminal defense attorney. The investigation continues.
